We are very grateful to one of our members, Jonathan Magee, who has signed up for HELL & BACK, Ireland’s Toughest Mental & Physical Endurance Challenge.
All monies raised will going towards our fight against oesophageal cancer.
Jonathan is braver than us, Hell & Back is Ireland’s largest obstacle course run. Participants must complete a 10-15KM trail route crossing rivers and lakes, climbing hills and mountains and crawling through bogs and swamps. To survive, you must conquer all the elements thrown at you, whether that is the temperamental weather conditions, the gruelling natural environment or the torturous man-made obstacles.
We wish you the best of luck Jonathan and appreciate your support!
