Rugby World Cup fever is coming and to mark this event the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) is going global and hosting a unique Tag Rugby World Cup on Saturday, 6th August at Blackrock College RFC, Stradbrook from 12pm…
Tag Rugby is a hugely popular summer game for both sexes and all ages. We are looking for 20 teams to play on the day that will represent the 20 countries competing in September’s World Cup so this is your chance wear your country’s colours and be a World Cup winner this summer!
This one day charity 7-a-side blitz will be sticking to the Official IRFU Tag Rugby playing laws, which can be found HERE. (Mixed Team, min of 3 female players on the pitch at any time / max players per squad is 15 – each game is 15 minutes long).
It is just €;200 to submit your team into this fun tournament which will also include a delicious summer barbecue and goodie bag for each player. The clubhouse bar will be open all day; presentations with special guests, a raffle and music will conclude the day’s festivities so bring your friends!
You don’t need to go all the way to New Zealand to get into the rugby spirit!
All proceeds raised will go towards helping people with Motor Neurone Disease; an incurable neurological condition that leaves people unable to do everyday things that the rest of us take for granted, walking, talking and swallowing may become virtually impossible.
The IMNDA is the primary support organisation in Ireland providing care for people with MND, their families and carers. To provide these essential services the IMNDA depends heavily on fundraising and donations which provide over 75% of its overall income.
