Well done to local blogger Grace Mongey of FacesByGrace.com who took part in the Great Ireland 5k last month in aid of Tallaght Cancer Support Group and raised €2,267.17 for the local charity.
Yesterday she presented the cheque to Tallaght Support Group with whom she has a strong connection having lost her father Frank to cancer eight years ago.
New mum Grace, who gave birth to her daughter Sienna in September, finished the run in a time of just over 38 minutes, and was delighted with the accomplishment.
Speaking after crossing the finish line last month she said:
“This is the best feeling I have ever had.
“Having followed the Great Ireland Run ‘Couch to 5km’ training plan since January, it’s a thrill to see that my hard work has paid off.”
Over 15,000 people took to the Phoenix Park for the 15th staging of the Great Ireland Run.
