On September 16th as part of South Dublin County Council’s (SDCC) Health and Well Being Week, sponsored by SDCC,  Team James hosted their own 5km and 2km race ‘Team James Run for Barretstown’.  The Inaugural Event was held in Corkagh Park, Clondalkin, where they are set out to have #seriousfun all in aid of Barretstown. James, along with help of family and friends enjoyed a fantastic day and an inclusive event for all.
