More than 15 countries around the world joined Alltech
Ireland in September to complete Run2Raise, a 5k obstacle
challenge in aid of Irish farming charity Embrace FARM.
The event was held on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
Families who have received support from Embrace FARM
joined the wider agricultural industry in Ireland to run,
and they raised a total of 16,000 on the day, with more
donations still being received. The funds will go directly to
the support network Embrace FARM to help provide for
families who have lost a loved one or su ered serious injury
in a farming accident.
"Without a doubt, we are absolutely delighted to have
supported Embrace FARM by hosting this event," said
Niall Brennan, key account manager for Alltech Ireland.
"Founders Brian and Norma Rohan do an incredible job,
and supporting Embrace FARM ensures that the money is
going to make a real di erence in the lives of Irish farming
families who have su ered an accident or a tragic loss."
Embrace FARM, a non-profit charity organisation founded
by Brian Rohan and his wife, Norma, in 2014, helps
increase awareness about the importance of farm safety by
sharing stories of victims who have passed away or were
injured in a farming accident. The Irish charity provides a
bereavement support service for the families who survive
the loss of a loved one from a farming fatality, as well as the
survivors who have su ered a farming injury.
"On behalf of the board of Embrace FARM, I would like
to extend our sincere gratitude to the team at Alltech for
considering us as their charity of choice this year," said
Brian Rohan, chairperson of Embrace FARM. "A lot of work
went into organising Run2Raise, and the e ort was evident
when so many people turned up to run. As a charity, we
could not continue the work we do with families without
such generosity and goodwill from these great fundraisers.
Giving is not just about making a donation; it's about
making a di erence, and this donation makes a huge
di erence to our charity."
