The Pioneer Total Abstinence Association (PTAA) successfully entered the Association’s first team in the 31st Lifestyle Sports-Adidas Dublin City Marathon on Monday 25 October 2010.
PTAA CEO Padraig Brady led the three-strong Pioneer team. Other team members included Derry-based Harry McNulty, a Pioneer Diocesan Treasurer and a runner with 43 marathons under his belt and Belfast man, Paul O’Hare who previously ran marathons in London and New York.
Commenting on the Pioneer marathon team, PTAA CEO said:
“We were delighted to have entered a team for this year’s Dublin City Marathon. I would like to thank Harry and Paul for so generously giving their support to our Association. The Association also appreciates the support we received from many people North and South in sponsoring us for the marathon. We look forward to building on the success of this year’s team by entering a team for every forthcoming Dublin City Marathon.”
The Association’s decision to enter a designated race team indicates a new direction for the Association as its fundraising committee continues to simultaneously streamline and capitalise on the Pioneers’ ongoing fundraising activities.
