Welcome to my inaugural marathon fundraising page.
Just two months ago I decided (or was talked into) embarking on a journey that will hopfully end in marathoning victory!! :)
To make things even better, I have been given the chance to do this while also raising funds and awareness for an incredible cause! When you click DONATE TO THIS FUNDRAISER, you will not only be giving me a great boost to get my bum of the couch but also you will be donating to an incredible charity - GOAL!!
GOAL was founded in Dublin by former sports journalist John O’Shea and has developed into a global organization. Goal and their Goalies are dedicated to alleviating the suffering of the poorest people across the globe, in particular those worst affected by war or natural disasters. Goal have responded to every major humanitarian disaster since 1977.
In aid of this fantastic charity, I have been training to participate in the New York City Marathon and I hope to undertake the 26.2 mile challenge in four hours (or less).
Check out this page closer to the time - I will post my bib number so anyone interested, can track my progress on their hi-phones! :) And If you are semi-contemplating it, I can hopefully inspire someone to do something similar soon!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your generous donations!!
