Fundraising For GALWAY SIMON COMMUNITY and St. Vincent de Paul Ireland and Voices for Down Syndrome Galway
Latest Update !!

A creaking middle aged deluded Austin Powers 60's throwback lardass carcass is going gallumping around city streets Boston Marathon 2020


Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page on

I'm taking part in Boston Marathon on Monday 20th of April 2020
I don't know how many marathons this middle aged creaking lardy carcass has left in it.

In case I run out of steam I'm going to fundraise once, for three charities close to my heart.

I've chosen to fundraise for

1) GALWAY SIMON COMMUNITY most of us are only 3 paypackets away from the risk of homelessness, it could be me or you)

2) St. Vincent de Paul Ireland (poverty is silent and sometimes invisible. SVdeP consistenty bear silent witness to that, but always help)

3) Voices for Down Syndrome Galway  (are a wonderful charity, and they are helping a son of a friend, and his peers, maximise their potential. Go Jack go!!)

All funds raised here will go directly to these three great causes. All costs of the trip are borne by me, every cent donated goes to the charities.

If that Covid-19 yokey cancels the gig, I'll run the 26.2 miles in the hils of connemara on the same day instead.
I hope you can help me by donating whatever you can. I don't think I'm going to raise Austin Powers "one million dollars" but .......

Eddie's donation was offline, and I've sent it on line to tally up. Thank you Eddie. I might have to run this marathon in September in Boston, but it gives me more time to train and fundraise for three great charities, who need monies, now, even more than when we started this fundraising. Thanks Eddie. John.


Mammy and Daddy


Good man John. You are a topper. Sorry that it has been postponed. Make it a good run in September.

Mammy, Daddy, Thanks a million. Hunker down at home. I\'ll phone you tomorrow.



Thank you so much. Very generous. John

Robert Shaw


John Thanks for your huge support for the 90 Voices kids and teenagers. Its a vital cog in reching full potential. Good Luck.

Robert, I\'ll do my best. With this Covid, the run has been postponed until september. Every cloud has a silver lining. It will leave more time for the fundraising.

Amy Rossiter


you are an inspiration John, chat soon at GP school if we ever get back, best of luck!

Amy, thanks a million. Mind yourself. Make sure any of the gang contact one of the team over anything, over the next while.



Fair play John!




Thanks a million. Each donation is making me feel more and more guilty for each missed run when the rain is sideways. Just gotta get out there now.
