The IAFA entered two relay teams into the Barrington's Hospital Great Limerick Run 2013. Both teams were attempting to set a Guinness World Record with each team member running a distance of over 6.5 miles on just one leg and crutches, without the use of their prosthesis. Each team member showed incredible fitness, stamina, desire and determination to complete this daunting challenge. The IAFA squad members undertook this mammoth task to raise funds for the Paddy Power Cup, the first ever amputee football tournament to take place in Ireland. The competition which will see 6 European nations battle it out for 1 prize will be held at the University of Limerick's Sports Campus on the 10th and 11th of August 2013. The teams who took part in this epic challenge were:
Team Paddy Power: David Saunders, Patrick Hickey, Alan Wall and Diarmuid Devanney.
Team Umbro: Simon Baker, Donal Bligh, and Garry Hoey.
The IAFA would like to extend a huge thank you to all the family, friends and supporters who urged both teams over the finish line on the day.
