Glencar Lough Swim in aid of MS therapy is on today

The third Glencar Lough Swim takes place today

The third Glencar Lough Swim is taking place today, Saturday, September 15 at Glencar Lough and there will be a 1km, 2km and 5km swim available.


Speaking about the event Shane Sweeney, MS Therapy Centre Physiotherapist and organiser of the event highlighted the importance of fundraising events like this.
"The North West MS Therapy Centre depends on donations and fundraising annually to run this essential service for so many people with neurological conditions and their families around the North West of Ireland.
“It has always been my wish to have an event like this at Glencar having grown up in the area, so the Glencar Lough Swim, now in its 3rd year not only raises vital funds for the centre but also promotes Leitrim and especially Glencar.
“I wish to thank all who take part, sponsor, volunteer and show up to support this event every year."


Pre- registration is available online at www.active.com or by contacting glencarloughswim@gmail.com.
