Let’s have a party!
With support from Champion Sports, Peugeot Ireland, Red Bull, Spin 1038 and entertainment.ie, Brian Maher of Spin 1038 and Mike Sheridan of entertainment.ie / RTÉ’s TwoTube will set out to run 126 miles (the equivalent of 5 marathons) in one day in aid of Special Olympics Ireland. Pushing the limitations of physical and mental endurance, the pair’s journey will begin in Limerick City at 7am on Thursday 26th April. Approximately 30 hours later, they will arrive on Dublin’s Grafton St.
Wednesday the 11th of April marks the launch of Challenge 126 and we’re inviting you to come support the lads at their fundraising party in The Grand Social. Kicking off upstairs at 7pm, this evening will feature live comedy from entertainment.ie’s Comedian of the Year 2011 Eric Lalor; sketch comedy from Foil Arms and Hog; magic like you’ve never seen it before from illusionist extraordinaire Shane Gillen; live music; DJing by none other than Brian Maher himself; a BBQ and an exciting raffle. (Among the prizes are a chance to meet and greet with Stifler, his mom and the cast of American Pie Reunion; a luxury weekend break; a whole range of theatre/gig/premiere tickets and more).
We’re expecting a full house, so please make your 5 Euro donation here to enjoy a great night out and support Special Olympics. 5 Euro donations can also be given on the door.
If you can’t join us on the 11th, you can support their efforts by making a donation through http://www.challenge126.com or by texting the word ‘Donate’ to 57252 (ROI) to give €2 (min. of €1 goes to Special Olympics Ireland) or 85122 (NI) to donate £1.50 (min. of £0.75 goes to the charity).
