WTS 214: 20-4-20 Challenge with Eamonn Maloney & Mary O'Shea
This week we're joined by two of the participants in the Suicide or Survive 20-4-20 challenge. (Donate by visiting https://justgiving.com/campaign/20-4-20)
The aim of the 20-4-20 challenge is to get a group of 20 people of all ages & fitness levels to complete 20,000km & raise €20,000 between February and the 10th September (World Suicide Prevention Day ).
This breaks down to each individual completing 1000km & raising 1000, 1 a Km. The 1000km can be completed by walking, running, cycling, swimming, rowing or crawling and all in aid of the brilliant SOS.
Eamonn, who is based in Galway, shares his personal story and what led him to get involved in the brilliant initiative which is the brain child of John Blake. Mary, based in Tralee, came into the challenge in a totally different way but still with an incredible story and mind set.
