Thurles man Aaron Sweeney to embark upon 160km marathon run for JIGSAW
Thurles man Aaron Sweeney is about to embark upon a mammoth task of running 160km in just over 24 hours in aid of JIGSAW. He is seeking the support of the general public in the process.
Aaron, a trainee solicitor working with Cian O’Carroll in Cashel has been pounding the streets of the town over the last few weeks trying to get the mileage into the legs. He is now almost set for the enormous challenge.
“I am running in the Connemara100 ultramarathon on August 8 in aid of JIGSAW which will hopefully be opening in Thurles in the near future.
“I began fundraising for JIGSAW recently and I am now trying to raise awareness about the fundraiser and the fact that JIGSAW is still coming to Thurles and the online services which are available to the young people of Tipperary through the group especially during the pandemic.
“Mental health is something I am very passionate about. I met with Deputy Jackie Cahill TD last weekend and I was speaking about JIGSAW coming to the town and that will be a very positive thing for the area,” Aaron said.
