Inishowen urged to get moving this
THE Irish Cancer
Society is urging people in Inishowen to get moving
as part of its virtual marathon campaign, which
challenges people to clock up 42km in 31 days. The
charity’s Marathon in a Month fundraising campaign
is a free and easy way to complete your first
marathon and help the fight against cancer.
By taking on Marathon in a Month this July,
participants will be raising vital funds that will
help ensure no one in Donegal has to face cancer on
their own. Each year an overage of 1050 people in
Donegal are diagnosed with cancer and are in need of
support to cope.
