13 Hours In…..

Mike and Brian are now 13 hours into their ‘Chalenge 126′. They left Limerick just before 8am this morning and started running to Dublin – 126 Miles away! They’ve been running on the old Dublin Road R445 non stop passing through Birdhill, Nenagh, Toomevara, Moneygall, Roscrea and Borris In Ossory.  The weather was against them all day but they’re still in good spirits! A big thank you to everyone who’s supported us so far along the route, Clarion Hotel Limerick, Mr.Friend and his pupils from Toomevara N.S, Majella at Ollie Hayes pub, Moneygall, The Heritage Hotel, Portlaoise and all the Traffic Corps. Mike and Brian really appreciate it and they are very grateful for all the donations so far for ‘Challenge 126′ and Special Olympics! If you haven’t donated yet you can still donate to the right hand side or Text ‘DONATE’ to 57252.  The latest update is that the boys have run 60 miles and left Borris In Ossory, Laois  at 8pm tonight and are running towards Mountrath and Portlaoise! Amazing!

    Brian and Mike are complete legends. Seeing them complete this challenge shows that there are still brilliant, genuine, selfless people out there. Special Olympics Ireland are an excellent organisation, they give families memories that last for ever. Fair play to the lads for keeping people’s dreams alive and giving them a chance to shine. Heart warming stuff :)
