Through the fantastic initiative of Mark Keenan and friends, a phenomenal amount of money was raised for 2 very worthy causes throughout the summer of 2017. Running 5km every day, for 100 days was the challenge they set themselves! – adding up to an amazing achievement of completing 500km by each runner over the summer, with no breaks allowed! Starting on June 1st through to September 9th, they took up the challenge of running #500ksofsummer in aid of two charities – The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) and The NRH Foundation.
In total this amazing initiative raised a phenomenal €7,260 which was divided between both Charities. We wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who got behind this great event and for all those who participated – we are hugely indebted to you all.
