A DEDICATED group of charity champions are taking to the road for a great cause and their hearts are certainly in the right place.
The runners are planning to undertake The Great Irish Marathon, in aid of Kerry Hospice Foundation, and they are appealing to the public for donations to make a difference to the service they wish to support and the patients it helps.
They will undertake a demanding but exciting challenge of running 26 miles in 26 counties in 26 hours – a mile in every county – on June 21/22 to raise much needed funds for cancer palliative care.
One of the runners, Conor Cusack, said it’s all to remember a special lady Patsy O’Keeffe from Killarney who is the mother of one of our participants.
“Patsy lost her battle to cancer recently and she is greatly missed. We will run for patsy and every other person affected by cancer,” said Conor.
To help raise funds the group will hold a quiz night in the Killarney Plaza Hotel this Thursday, June 13, at 8.30pm and everybody is invited to go along to support the very worthy cause. The entry fee for tables of four is €40 and great prizes will be given away on the night.
