Denis goes the extra mile for Pieta House with remarkable marathon challenge

first_imgDenis Sheridan took on the Dublin Marathon earlier today in aid of Pieta House, and has raised a whopping €1,175 for the charity.This is Kilmacrennan man’s first attempt at the Dublin Marathon, and when some of his friends suggested he take on the challenge, he decided to raise much-needed funds for charity to boot.“Too many people have been lost to suicide here in Donegal leaving families ruined dealing with unanswered questions,” Denis explained to Donegal Daily. The busy dad of two says it has been difficult fitting training into his already jam-packed schedule.“I lead a busy lifestyle running my own business, so I’ve had to juggle a lot of things trying to get all the training done in the last four months!“I trained with Milford AC, even though the training was tough I made a lot of new friends while doing it. So doing it for Pieta house makes it feel worth the effort.“Not only will the money help Pieta House, but we are sending out a strong message to people who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts that we want to help.” It is not too late to donate to Denis’ fund – if you’d like to help you can visit his GoFundMe page by following this link:https://www.gofundme.com/4ltzr8gDenis goes the extra mile for Pieta House with remarkable marathon challenge was last modified: October 30th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DUBLIN MARATHONkilmacrennanPIeta Houselast_img read more
