This paper describes the author’s experience of the development of an initiative in the Ballymun area1 that began as a simple idea of engaging young people in structured activities over the summer months and grew into a 10-week accredited health and fitness programme called ‘Ballyrunners’. The programme was facilitated by existing interagency networks.
