On Saturday 29th May, a number of St Louis staff and friends of the school took part in a fundraising event to support a former work colleague (Mark McAlister) and his family on ‘A Day for Lisa.’
The group set off from Carnlough at 8am on Saturday morning to run or walk 10 miles along the beautiful, scenic north coast to finish at Cushendall Boat Club.
The McAlister family from Cushendall were raising funds in the hope of ensuring mental health support networks are more accessible to the people of the Glens. Their aim was to enhance understanding of mental health and provide funds to the charities and organisations who have supported the McAlister family since the tragic loss last summer of their daughter and sister, Lisa.
The St Louis group wish to sincerely thank all those who supported their fundraising efforts and appreciate every single donation received. The Just Giving page will be accessible for another few days if anyone else would like to contribute to the fundraising campaign here.
A number of staff members were unable to travel to Cushendall for the event but they did the walk/run in their own locality.
Thank you all!
