Marymount is delighted to launch its new virtual challenge along Cork's coastline, encouraging people to get moving and raise funds to help support Marymount Hospice Marymount's Rebel Way challenge takes runners, walkers and joggers on a virtual journey through the Beara Way - one of Cork's most scenic walks. You can sign up to complete the 100km trail from stunning Glengarrif to the wilds of Bere Island - all from your local area.
You can log your daily kilometres within your local 5km radius but virtually you will pe passing stunning Cork landmarks along the way from Dursey Island, Castletownbere to the winding hills of Allihies.
"Exercise is currently restricted to a 5km radius and no doubt we all miss being able to travel to some of County Cork's scenic areas such as the Beara Way. We are so excited to launch this stunning challenge. This new challenge opens up our walks and runs virtually to our beautiful coast and landmark walks," says Paula McGovern, Head of Fundraising with Marymount.
The Rebel Way challenge is a great way to encourage yourself and your close friends and family to keep up activity levels amid our current circumstances to keep mental and physically healthy and well.
Funds raised will support Marymount's frontline services. Marymount has had to cancel all of its traditional fundraising events in 2020 and 2021, while still needing to raise 3.5million each year to sustain current levels of service provision. The Marymount Rebel Way walking challenge will help support Marymount's services in 2021.
The virtual challenge runs for the month of March with people encouraged to start walking from 1st March. Registration is free however we ask you to set up your own fundraising page to raise funds while you progress on the route. You can also use your social media to spread the word, recording your walks and tagging Marymount and using hashtag #Marymountrebelway.
