We are running the Dublin Marathon to fundraise for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust in memory of Rob Hickey. Thank you for your support.

This year, the Dublin City Marathon is celebrating its 40th anniversary on the very day we should be celebrating Rob's 40th birthday, October 27th, 2019. As a group, we have decided to honour Rob's memory by participating in this event on behalf of the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust.
Rob passed away tragically in Melbourne, Australia while on holiday this past March. Amelia and I miss him so very deeply, as do our families and his many, many friends. Rob always had a smile on his face and his infective laugh lit up the room. He worked hard to support and provide for his family, always encouraging us to strive for better. He was a keen fitness enthusiast who loved encouraging people to take part and challenge themselves in this area. I can think of no more fitting tribute to honour him than to take part in this race.
The KBRT is an amazing organisation who work selflessly to bring home loved ones who have passed away abroad, quite often in tragic circumstances. When it was us that needed the help of the KBRT, it wasn't a matter of 'if,' it was a matter of 'when.' They gave us a glimmer of hope when we thought all hope had been lost. They helped us restore our faith in humanity. We will be forever grateful to them for ensuring the return of our dearest Rob and giving us the chance to say our final goodbyes.
Any donation you may be able to give to this wonderful organisation so that they can continue to help families in our situation would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you, as always, for your continued support during this difficult time.
