Registration for the fun run and walk takes place on both Monday night from 7-8pm and from 6pm on the evening of the event.Can anyone topple the club’s young running star Sean McGinley on the night?This is a fast course with chipped timing for anyone looking to get an accurate idea of how their training is going.The word is that even former club treasurer Bryan Faul is coming out of retirement for this one (or maybe he’s making the tea!) Entry fee is €10 for adults, €5 for children and €25 for a family.The race starts at 7.30pm but participants are advised to be there in plenty of time for the starting hooter.All funds raised on the night will go directly towards the development of the underage teams in the club.See you all at the finish line for those famous buns and tea!Large crowd expected for Glenswilly GAA annual 5K was last modified: June 11th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:5kglenswillylast_img read more

Others include CEO of the Year, Media Professional of the Year, and Brand Builder of the Year.The World Brand Congress represents 60 countries. Some 600 branding and marketing specialists are expected to participate in the 2010 event.Soni, a tourism specialist and award-winning businesswoman, will be honoured for her “professional efforts” in overseeing the activities of the IMC, as it delivers on its mandate to manage the country’s reputation, and position South Africa as an investment destination of choice.Under her guidance, the IMC is delivering on this mandate, both domestically and internationally. The most recent and highest-profile example is the 2010 Fifa World Cup – here the IMC’s mobilisation initiatives engendered strong social cohesion among South Africans, fulfilling the country’s 2010 brand promise to “celebrate Africa’s humanity”.She was also instrumental in the council’s drive to position South Africa’s business and economic competitiveness at the 2010 meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, which saw a powerful delegation of political and business leaders departing for Switzerland to promote the country’s agenda.While at the congress Soni will deliver a speech titled “The impact of international events on a nation’s pride and therefore its brand – sharing South Africa’s 2010 World Cup experience”.Passionate about South AfricaSoni believes the award does not belong to her alone, but to all the role players in government and the private sector that participate in building the country’s brand.“The IMC is the custodian of Brand South Africa, but the brand belongs to all South Africans,” she said. “The World Cup has shown that when South Africans act with unity of purpose, everyone contributes to growing our reputation on the international stage.“The primary role players responsible for enhancing the nation brand are dedicated, skilled and passionate about our country. This past year they have worked with great diligence to foster relationships, engage with international stakeholders and promote South Africa.”Soni added that the award belongs to everyone who contributed to South Africa’s enhanced global reputation, and that she would think of all South Africa’s brand builders when the award was placed in her hands.last_img read more
