Walking a Half Marathon For Charity

As some of you may know, I have been walking an average of 5km per day for almost 2.5 years (sharing my reflections from 2022 and 2023 as I go), where I revel at the splendour of the scenery that often greets me (while admitting it doesn’t look like this every day).

I am now attempting to quadruple this distance in a single day by walking a Half Marathon on Sunday, 23 June 2024 (as part of the Waterford Viking Marathon event). I’ve actually had a long-running life goal (pardon the pun) to complete a marathon, so maybe this is the start of achieving that goal at some future point.

Linked to this, I am hoping to raise some money for the Children’s Health Foundation in Crumlin, Ireland (formerly known as the Children’s Medical Research Foundation, part of Crumlin Children’s Hospital). All funds raised here will go directly to this great cause and those who know me will understand why this charity is close to my heart, and that of my extended family.

If you’d like to donate, you can do so via my iDonate page, and I’ll be humbled and grateful in equal measures. You are welcome to share this link for others to consider also.

Many thanks in advance for your support!
