Michelle’s tractor run took place on Sunday December 16, with over 200 vehicles showing their support.

The tractor run was set up in aid of local Clonkill resident, Michelle Greene, to help support her in her battle against NK Lymphoma. Michelle has been fighting the disease since March of this year and the monies earned through the tractor run were to support Michelle and her family in this difficult time. Her battle has meant that Michelle has spent a lot of the past few months away from her two children, CJ and Zoe, and fiancé Conor.

“This tractor run has been set up to elevate financial stress and take one less worry away so she can continue her fight.” Organisers posted.

Huge Turnout -
The maiden year of the event saw what was described as a “huge turnout” by one of the organisers, with over 200 trucks and tractors joining in the run.



Vehicles entered into the run were required to pay a fee of €25, with tractors, lorries, vintage cars and 4x4’s all showing their support. For those who wanted to take part but had no vehicle, there was also a family 5km walk, with a charge of €5 per person or €10 per family. There was also a bake sale at the event and Santa Claus even managed to make it down for a visit.

Attendees were then treated to refreshments and a raffle after the competition of the run.

Monies Raised -
To date, That'sFarming have been informed that over €17,500 has been tallied as a result of the recent fundraising efforts in Clonkill, Co. Westmeath, a whopping total.

For those who couldn’t attend on the day, a gofundme page is still in operation and has already raised in excess of €10,000. You can still donate here.
