Marathon Kids and David Gillick Visit

Over a period of 8 weeks, we participated in 32 running sessions and completed our first marathon. We also learned about the physical and mental benefits of running. Former Irish athlete and world class sprinter, David Gillick, visited Ballygar N.S to present us with our medals. It was an amazing day that we will never forget.
