Alltech Ireland will be hosting a 5k charity obstacle challenge, #Run2Raise, in Kinnitty Castle, Co. Offaly on Saturday, September 28th with the goal of raising €15, 000 for Embrace FARM.Farmers from around the country will aim to raise the money for Irish farming families who have suffered the tragic loss of a loved one or have been affected by a farming accident.
Brian Rohan, co-founder of Embrace FARM said, “Farming accidents are the highest of all workplace accidents, which happen annually in Ireland,”
“Adapting to life after an accident can take a survivor and their loved ones through many difficult physical and mental challenges,” he added.
Niall Brennan, key account manager with Alltech Ireland, said, “Farm accidents have risen by 13% in the last five years and by 31% in the last 10 years,”
“Unfortunately, this is representative of much more than a statistic. These figures represent the loss of a husband, child, brother, friend, father."
"The goal of Run2Raise is to raise as much money and awareness for the superb work and support Embrace FARM provides for farming families across Ireland.”Information:
