“We hope our supporters will join us from every part of the globe be it Ahascragh or Australia. We are also delighted to be supporting two incredible charities who both do so much for so many every day,” said Pat Kearney, Chairman, Galway GAA.
“Cancer Care West are delighted to be involved in the ‘March for Maroon’ fundraising campaign. Our charity has had a very successful partnership with Galway GAA in the past and we are look forward to working with their members on this event. Our charity does not charge for any of our services and the pandemic has had a very detrimental affect on our fundraising revenue. Events such as ‘March for Maroon’ enable us to continue to provide vital supports to cancer patients and their families in the West,” said Richard Flaherty, CEO, Cancer Care West.
Sean Greene, Search Co-ordinator with the Oranmore-Maree Coastal Search Unit said “we are delighted and grateful to Galway GAA for choosing Oranmore-Maree Coastal Search Unit as one of their charity partners for ‘March for Maroon.’ We as an organisation bring hope to families at times of crises and there is no doubt that during these unprecedented times we are looking to the GAA to provide a distraction and hope for so many people.”
Galway GAA is asking everybody who takes part to adhere to the current government guidelines.
From anywhere on the planet you can March For Maroon and show your support for Galway. Join your fellow Galway GAA fans and help Galway GAA to prepare our inter-county teams for success in 2021. We are looking forward to the big days in Croke Park with Galway supporters roaring on our Teams from the stands and terraces. This is why our target is equal to the capacity of Croke Park 82,300
