Seán’s marathon walk for Marymount

Seán Lynch will walk a marathon distance (26.2 miles) within a 2K radius of his Mallow home on Friday next, 1st May, to raise funds for Marymount Hospice. Seán will set off at 9.30am for the walk which he estimates will take up to nine hours. He is a great supporter of Mary-mount Hospice which took wonderful care of his father in his final weeks in 2009, and every year since then he has held a fundraiser for the service. He has been doing lots of long walks to prepare him for next week’s exertions, but he should be well capable of it, as he is a long-time walking enthus-iast who has completed both the French and Portuguese Caminos. Friday next will also be Seán’s 59th birthday, so it will be a doubly significant day for him. Seán is director of QIFA Financial Planners in Mallow, and the company has already donated €500 to the cause. He has set up a GoFundMe page as well, and at the time of going to press over €550 had been donated. If you would like to donate to Marymount, go to the GoFundMe website and look for either ‘Seán Lynch’ or ‘Within 2K marathon’.
