David taking on 247km in 72 hours for Aware

Last year David O'Connor took on completing 10 marathons in 10 days in aid of Aware with a fundraising target of €10,000. In April 2018 David finished all 10 marathons and raised a lot more than his original target.

Now in 2019 he is taking on a new endurance challenge in aid of Aware. Starting 8am on Friday 26th April, he will begin a 247km run throughout Dublin within 72 hours. This is the equivalent of running nearly 6 marathons in 3 days. He is choosing to run 247km to represent the 24hrs a day, 7 days week impact that mental illness can have.

Keep an eye on David's progress on his instagram page and on Aware's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
