A family in Caim has been undertaking an innovative fundraising initiative for the month of June to raise money for one of the country's most respected charities.

Mia-Lily and Lorcan's Wheel 100 Challenge was organised by the Ruttle family and the children's mother, Ailish, said that it was the first fundraiser the family had taken on together.

'We will wheel our way to 100km to raise money for Enable Ireland,' said Ailish.

The family carried out their walk around their local community and began on June 1.

Mia-Lily used her specialist buggy while her little brother, Lorcan, used his scooter, bike and cart.

Ailish said that she and her husband, Trevor, were 'under a sweat' following their children, 'pushing one and running after the other'.

'I'm raising money for Enable Ireland,' said Ailish, who acknowledged the support the fundraising initiative has received from the public.

She said everyone's contribution will make an impact whether they donated a little or a lot.

'It all helps and we thank you for your support,' said Ailish.
