Willie, Neil and Caoimhe Cusker - who are busy preparing for the 4th Run for Mum in memory of the late Deirdre Cusker, which will be held on St Stephen's Day, 26 December.

The fourth annual Run for Mum – in memory of the late Deirdre Cusker – will take place again on St Stephen’s Day event in Maynooth.

The run will raise more badly-needed funds for the suicide-prevention charity, the 3Ts (Turning the Tide of Suicide)

While the plan is to have plenty of local competition on the day, festive cheer is the main priority for the organisers, who are looking forward to judging the best fancy-dress outfit on the day, said spokesperson, Brendan Coffey

Willie Wonka, Big Bird and Batman have all made memorable appearances in the past and this year it’s rumoured that some big-name Hollywood film stars will be lining the 3km route.

Last year Conor Burke (Celbridge AC) won last year’s event while Kilcoole AC’s Joanne Cullen – a niece of Deirdre Cusker - was the first lady to complete the course in a time of 11.39. Among the field were the Cusker family – Deirdre’s husband Willie and their two children Neil and Caoimhe – and their efforts helped to raise an astonishing €8,341.87 for the 3Ts. Since 2010, the event has raised €20,000.
