I have been running for years, but in 2020 everything changed!  Running became a massive part of my physical and mental health, and led to great fun and friendships as we survived lockdown after lockdown.  When I saw this challenge to run a marathon distance a week for Ireland’s children’s hospice, LauraLynn, I thought I should go for it!  Now if I could ask for your help to sponsor me. Massive thanks in advance- I’ll get running!

Ray D’Arcy is a long-standing supporter of LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice and he is also an avid runner which is how Ray’s Marathon Challenge was born. Ray decided to set the nation’s running lovers a challenge of clocking up 26.2 miles in a week, every week, for a full year!

Ray is hoping to get 1000 like-minded people to sign up and join his challenge. If every one of those 1000 people raised €500 each throughout the year, that would raise a whooping half a million euro for LauraLynn.

LauraLynn is Ireland’s only Children’s Hospice providing hospice and palliative care to children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Last year, 374 children and families from every corner of Ireland availed of LauraLynn care, supports and activities. All funds raised from this challenge will go towards supporting these children and their families.

Great to see. Hopefully confirms that we will use every tool in the armoury versus….Subsidised antigen tests likel…
