Mobile marathon from Galway to Dublin
7th, 8th and 9th August
On the Weekend of the 7th, 8th and 9th of August, 39 year old John O’Regan from Leixlip, Co. Kildare ran a Marathon Relay from Galway to Dublin with the help of Anthony Lee from Clane in Co. Kildare, Padraic Doherty from Maynooth Co. Kildare, and Seamus O’Dowd from Clogherhead in Louth. The aim was to collect Mobile phones along the way and raise awareness for Jack and Jill. A Van load of phones were collected and the the event raised the profile of Jack and Jill, with the marathon being covered in both the national and local media. Our thanks to John and his team and also to the Gala Stores along the route who supported the runners.
