A big fat thank you from the President and Chairman of Suttonians RFC to all the members and friends who took part in the recent Fat Turkey Walk and Run…

The club is particularly grateful to all the volunteers who helped to make the event run smoothly by working at registration, in the car park or as stewards along the route etc. Almost as grateful as we were to the sun gods for melting the snow just in the nick of time to give us a great day out!

Runners; you can check out your place in the rankings in the club news section of www.srfc.ie. Of course it’s the taking part that counts though, even if a guy running backwards completes it 15 minutes earlier than you! Fair play to Karl Twomey (http://backwards4cancer.com) who included the Fat Turkey in his training runs ahead of completing the London Marathon backwards next year.

All in, a great day was had and most importantly we stand to raise vital funds for S.R.F.C and the I.R.F.U Charitable Trust.

We would really appreciate it if you could return any outstanding sponsorship cards / money / collections cans to the club asap – for the attention of Emer Litchfield or Mossy Connolly.

Online donations can also still be made at www.thefatturkeywalk.com and any amount would be appreciated.
