The Family Addiction Support Network appeals to young and old to join the 5k
family fun run organised by FASN & An Garda Síochána to raise funds for family support services.

FASN – who provides support & services to family members and loved ones experiencing
substance misuse issues – is expecting hundreds to take part in their 5k & Family Fun Run
fundraiser taking place this New Years Day.

The run, sponsored by Dundalk Credit Union and other local businesses will take place in Dundalk,
Co. Louth.

Jackie McKenna, the FASN Project Coordinator, said; “FASN is proud to partner with An Garda
Síochána to host our 2nd annual 5k & Family Fun Run. The run will be a great event and a positive
way to start 2023. You can run or walk as suits you best, with friends or family members.”

“In an effort to address a shortfall in funding & maintain our services, the FASN 5K is part of our
ongoing fundraising campaign and 100% of the monies raised will fund our services into 2023. In
addition, we hope to raise awareness of our organisation and the assistance we provide to
communities across the Northeast” Jackie added.
