Irish Cancer Society Wants Kerry People To Do ‘Marathon In A Month’

Posted by


THE Irish Cancer Society is encouraging people across Kerry to get active and clock up a Marathon in a Month this June to help support people affected by cancer.

The effects of the coronavirus pandemic are far-reaching for the cancer community and the Irish Cancer Society has expanded its services and introduced new ones in order to be there for people at this worrying time.

In Kerry an average of 1,178 people are diagnosed with cancer each year and Marathon in a Month is a chance to support people affected by cancer by raising funds to keep these new and existing services going.

Participants have one month to clock up 42kms and it can be done safely within the public health guidelines. You can do it in your home, in your garden, on an exercise bike.

Marathon in a Month, proudly supported by Ballygowan, is suitable for people at all stages in their fitness journey – including those who want to tackle that very first kilometre.

Participants can link their everydayhero online fundraising page to their fitness app and keep track of their progress as they raise money to help the 40,000 people in Ireland who will be diagnosed with cancer this year.

Last year almost 1,000 people committed to undertaking a Marathon in a Month, clocking up more than 12,000km and raising more than €130,000 in the process.
