Marty’s 4000km coastal walk to raise funds for Friends of the Cancer Centre, Belfast and the Irish Cancer Society

imageHi, I’m Marty Holland. In recent times, I’ve lost two very close friends to cancer. The sense of powerlessness I’ve felt when my friends were dying has motivated me to get out there and do something positive to support cancer charities. 

I plan to walk around the entire coast of Ireland in 2 stages – in 2016, Munster and Leinster and in 2017, Ulster and Connacht. About 4000km in all. I’m starting on 24th May 2016 in my adopted county, Clare. I’ll finish for 2016 on The Border near Newry and recommence there on 20th March 2017. When in the Republic of Ireland, I’ll fund raise for The Irish Cancer Society and when in Northern Ireland for  Friends of the Cancer Centre, Belfast. Both charities do wonderful work in supporting cancer research and cancer sufferers and their families.

 

If you’d like to sponsor me, I’ve set up an online account for donations to Friends of the Cancer Centre, Belfast: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/coastforcancer  

 

If you wish to donate to the Irish Cancer Society, here is the link:     https://give.everydayhero.com/ie/coast-for-cancer 

You can also support me by offering accommodation en route and/or transportation of luggage from a to b. If you can help, please contact me at my email below:
