Best foot forward: 50-mile walk to raise vital funds for cancer patients
Participants from the 32 counties are preparing to tackle the eighth Moylagh 50-Mile Challenge on June 8 and raise vital funds for cancer patients.
The event will see up to 1,000 people set off at 6am on a 50-mile (80km) route around Meath, Cavan and Westmeath. To date, €575,000 has been raised for the Irish Cancer Society and LARCC Cancer Support Centre. The challenge inherits its name from an endurance test first handed down by John F Kennedy to the military to cover 50 miles on foot within 20 hours. Participants can walk as much or as little as they want.
