Det Garda Colm Horkan Memorial 1/2 Marathon, 5&10k Race series organised by the 62 Infantry Group


Goal : €3000
From 170 fantastic supporters

On Sunday 14 February 2021 members of the 62 Infantry group based in Syria with the UNDOF mission will take to the roads of our base here in Camp Faouar to raise funds for the Colm Horkan Memorial Pitch and community walkway project. 

Det Garda Colm Horkan lost his life tragically while on active duty in Castlerea County Roscommon in June 2020. Colm had many keen interests in life  but above all he  was a Big GAA supporter and played and competed at the highest levels for both club and county.  With that said his Club Charlestown Sarsfields have set out to build a new GAA pitch and community walkway in his honour.  
On February 14 Members of our group will run in a  race of their choice ranging in distance from 5km -21km. 
We are hoping to play our part in contributing to this great fundraising effort and helping to keep Colm Horkans legacy and memory alive forever.
