Local couple’s year of challenges for Pieta House continues with Belfast Marathon on Monday
A local couple are undertaking a year of challenges for Pieta House with this Monday’s Belfast Marathon next on their radar.
Edel Kieran and her partner Kevin Duffy, from Inniskeen are raising funds throughout the year for the suicide awareness charity which is entirely dependent on donations for funding.
So far they have climbed Mulhacén, the highest mountain in mainland Spain, climbed Ben Nevis in the depths of Scottish winter (pictured above) and run the Cooley Legends Half Marathon across the hills from Ravendale to Carlingford.
The pair’s next challenge is the Belfast Marathon on Monday. A few weeks after that they will climbing Mont Blanc, then later travelling to Russia to climb Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe!
When they’re not on the mountains, they’ll be training for them by running races up to 100 miles long.
Edel, who works in Dundalk, and Kevin would like to thank everyone for all the donations and support so far and extend the same thanks on behalf of Pieta House.
