Mooneys Hyundai fundraising for Our Lady's Hospital
Over 20 staff members from Mooney's two Hyundai dealerships on the Long Mile Road and in Deansgrange, all from different departments, and all with different fitness levels decided to test themselves to run the Runamuck challenge in aid of Crumlin Children's Hospital.
The team raised a total of €1,300 over 6 weeks. The entry fees for the challenge were fully covered by Mooney’s, which allowed all the money raised to go towards the charity close to the hearts of many employees.
The event was a 5.5k run with obstacles along the way. Some employees faced their fears and climbed large obstacles. The event was chipped timed so added a competitive edge to the event while having fun and raising vital funds for the charity. There were over 50 obstacles that included net scramble and crawls, slides, balance planks, bogs, ditches, streams and a floating pontoon bridge across a lake with lots of terrain variation.
Mooney's hope to continue their charity throughout the year and have another event planned for in the second have of the year.
