In 2021 Hugh & Paddy are taking on their biggest challenge to date, known as the toughest foot race on earth. This challenge is to raise money for two amazing charities, The Irish Hospice Foundation and Northern Ireland Hospice.
In October 2021 they will be taking part in the legendary Marathon Des Sables. A six day ultra-marathon, that comprises of running 156 miles in the Sahara Desert at a time of year when the temperature can exceed 50 degrees Celsius, all this while carrying their own food and water in a 15kg back pack and sleeping in a tent when they can over the six day challenge.
Hugh Morgan has said, “The challenge that Paddy and I are facing in the training and preparation for this run across the Sahara Desert is only a fraction of the challenge that the nurses and doctors face each morning as they try to care for their patients who are facing the ultimate challenge as they fight for their life. I encourage everybody to get involved in this fundraising event so we can raise as much as possible for both charities.”
Our overall goal is to help those supporting people in need, with the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, charities have suffered huge impacts with fundraising events around the globe cancelled. This is our way of helping two worthy charities as they work through challenges to continue supporting those in need.
Thank you for all of your support and any donation that you will be able to make will help these two charities.
