Enable Ireland Fitness Challenge 2012

24 January 2012



On Saturday and Sunday the 24th & 25th March in association with Michael 'Ducksy' Walsh there is a fitness challenge to generate much needed funds for Enable Ireland here in Kilkenny. The event is being held in the Leisure centre in Hotel Kilkenny.

The GAA All Stars Fitness Challenge will be made up of teams from the world of Handball, Hurling (both past and present Hurlers), Camogie, the Gardai, the Army and teams from various sports clubs in Kilkenny. All of the teams will be competing against each other on the day. Brian Cody and the Kilkenny Senior Hurling Team have very generously agreed to come on board and support this event. The current Senior Hurlers will be putting in two teams.

Each team will consist of 8 members. Each team member is required to complete:
- 15 minutes on a Bike
- 15 minutes on a Treadmill
- 15 minutes on a Rowing Machine
- 15 minutes on a Cross-trainer

KTC have been asked to enter one team (or two if the interest is there) in this charity event and we are looking for members to represent us. Members who participate will be given a sponsorship card which they will be asked to sell as many lines as possible to raise money for this worthy cause.

Enable Ireland Kilkenny are the early intervention service providers recognised and contracted by the Health Services Executive South to provide a range of therapeutic and Day Services to children who are identified with:
- Primary physical disability
- Sensory/intellectual disabilities
- Developmental Delay

Currently 102 Kilkenny children and their parents attend the Centre. The service provides guidance and support to parents and encourage an integrated therapeutic approach to working with children both in the centre and in their homes.

The services are funded on a grant basis by the HSE however, each year there is a significant deficit, which must be met through fundraising. To maintain the level of services provided at the Centre we must fundraise €170,000 each year.

This competition is open to both male and female athletes. Can any member who is interested in taking part in this event and is willing to put their body on the line please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . If we get alot of interest, like last year, we will run trials, with the fittest members getting the opportunity to test themselves against some of the fittest athletes in the country!
