flowerThank You

We have dedicated this area to pay special tribute to the extremely generous people who have made a contribution to CRY. It is because of these amazing people that CRY is able to keep our doors open as we do not receive any government funding. All at CRY would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who has provided us with support.

Carol Benner Completes her first Marathon for CRY

Tralee  Marathon  Medal

Carol Benner completed  the Tralee International Marathon on 16th March 2013. This was Carol's first ever marathon.  Carol Benner is married to Stephen Benner who is the first cousin of the late Peter Greene.  She joined a group of novice runners, Born to Run, last October. She never thought she would ever sign up for a Marathon.  However, she completed the run in 4 hours and 40 minutes. The last few miles were extremely difficult but it was thanks to her sister Colette who cycled alongside and encouraged her to the finish line that she finally made it. Carol raised €590.  A big thank you from Cry to Carol and all who supported her.
