Moylagh JFK 50 Mile Challenge

Covering a spectacular region of Meath, Cavan and Westmeath. In aid of The Irish Cancer Society Starting on the 8th AUG 2020 For information email: info@50milechallenge.com Take up the challenge of completing 50 miles under 20 hours or less. Why not walk part of this challenge and still support this great cause! Sponsorship Cards - Minimum of €50 per walker This Walking thing is not for me!! Most of us learn to live comfortably within our limits but occasionally we like to test where our boundaries lie. When presented with a difficult physical challenge, we might assume that only someone with extraordinary motivation and self-confidence could pull it off. However, there are situations where, conditions being right, a small spark can ignite a huge fire. Given the right set of circumstances, even average people can reach well beyond their limits and achieve something they never thought possible. Details of training walks will be advertised nationally, and on the Moylagh JFK 50 Mile Challenge pages on Facebook. More information on www.50milechallenge.com

If times were normal we would be having the chats with you all over a nice cold drink and reminiscing on the walk. Mary and Joan would be in the back counting the last few donations. But as with the walk we will come together virtually tonight. Hope you enjoy a trip down memory lane
