Ballyglass Community Council/Childcare Centre Fundraiser
Ballyglass on the Move (BotM) will launch its keep fit / lose weight / adopt a healthier lifestyle on Tuesday 12th February at 7 pm. in the Childcare Centre with a Pancake Party.
There will be an optional weigh in (private) for those who want to lose weight - and will take place each Tuesday evening at 7 pm.  This will take place in the Childcare Centre on the initial night, and will be in the Community Centre for the remainder of the BotM event.
A representative from Mayo Sports Partnership will give a talk on leading a healthier lifestyle and demonstrate warm up exercises, on the launch night.
Activities planned include...
    - Pilates every Tuesday evening at 7.30pm in the Community Centre;
    - Jiving lessons on Thursday evenings at 8.30 pm - also in the Community Centre.
    - Catherine Duignan, Registered Nutritionist, will give a talk on Wednesday 20th Feb in the Community Centre, on healthy eating.
The Walking Track at the Soccer Club will be available and fully lit until 11 pm each night - membership of the track has been reduced by the Soccer Club from €15 to €10 for BotM members.
You can participate in all or some of the events - or do things at your own pace.   The goal of the BotM event is for participants to walk/run/jog a 10 km road race or to complete 10 laps of the walking track (6km).
Entry fee is €10 - or if you wish to just participate in the final walk/run on 30th March the entry fee for this is €10.
Sponsorship cards for participants will be available and all funds raised will be divided between the Community Council and the Childcare Centre.   Plans are afoot to refurbish the kitchen area of the Community Centre and funding is required for this project.
All are welcome - young and old.
