A five kilometer run/walk organized by the Aisling Irish Community Center on Sunday, May 19 will be dedicated to a woman who knew no bounds while she lived in New York a number of years ago.
Pauline Boylan-Coll was a great supporter and friend of the Aisling Irish Center while living in New York as well as many other causes in the New York Irish community, particularly GAA. She was instrumental in establishing underage football “Gaelic 4 Girls” here in New York. Pauline was married to Paul and had one son, Ethan. After battling cancer for a number of years, Pauline sadly passed away in 2012.
This 5K walk/run is dedicated to Pauline’s memory. She was taken from this world too soon, but left an unforgettable legacy. Pauline died in Ireland.
The funds raised will benefit programs and services provided by Aisling Irish Community Center as well as another non-profit organization nominated by Pauline’s family. This is your opportunity to support and give back to your center and your community. Please encourage your friends to take part with you. Every dollar helps to keep the Aisling Center and the Irish Volunteers for the Homeless on its feet, so sign up today and put your own feet into gear for a very worthy cause!
Call the center at 914-237-5121 or stop by to get your sponsorship card.
