Pieta House & Irish Cancer Society

Hello and welcome to our fundraising page!

Our team is made up of Brendan, Emma, Linda and Melanie who represent a much wider group of runners from Esker Running Group Lucan, which encourages runners of all ages and abilities to come together twice a week and get active!

Unfortunately, our group along with many others throughout Ireland has been touched by either Cancer or Suicide. From our own running buddies to friends and family, we all have been affected one way or another.

So we decided to turn bad into good, and are running the 26.2 miles of the Dublin City Marathon 2018 for our affected loved ones and chosen charities Pieta House and the Irish Cancer Society.

We hope our training, time and gruelling effort can make a difference and help these charities, that work so hard to support our loved ones during their time in need.

We would be so grateful if you could make a donation of any kind to help us achieve our goal. If not, we would love to have your support on the day of the race, god knows we will need it!

Thanks in advance,

Emma, Brendan,Linda and Melanie
