Launch of the Airtricity Fans Biggest Winner 2013 Competition in aid of the John Giles Foundation

THE John Giles Foundation has launched a new initiative aimed at Airtricity League fans to help find ‘The Biggest Winner’ from the 20 clubs.

The competition is a weight loss challenge with the winner being the participant who makes the greatest overall weight loss percentage. The weigh in took place this week at FAI HQ in Abbotstown.

And Derek ‘Mono’ Monaghan has step forward to represent Bohemians. Keep an eye out for Mono’s bucket collections and sponsorship cards at upcoming games.

The person/club that raises the most amount of money will win the use of a 24-seat premium box at Aviva Stadium for a forthcoming Ireland game for their club.

The Airtricity League Fan Challenge will run for the last six weeks of the season and the winner will be announced at the cup final.


“This competition is all about bringing Fun into Fundraising,” said Giles. “We are all mindful of the need to look after our health and we’re hoping this competition will help the participants lose a few pounds and raise a few euro to help their clubs and the foundation.”

Monies raised will be shared between the participating clubs and the John Giles Foundation, which aims to facilitate positive social change by using the power of football to build community cohesion, promote health, and encourage lifelong participation and learning.
