WALK WITH RON

E-mail Print PDF
 
My name is Ron cummins. (57) I am a Heart Transplant recipient of seventeen years.
This June the 20th , starting from Salthill Galway, I am attempting to walk the coastline of Ireland (2500km) .
I am doing this to raise donor awareness and funds for the Irish Heart & Lung Transplant Association. This walk should take me 93 days so that I finish back in the Circle of Life Garden in Salthill Galway on the 20th of September marking the 18th year of my transplant.   

Starting time for the walk on Saturday the 20th is 11.00 am. from the Circle of life Garden in Salthill in Galway.
People can donate via http://www.mycharity.ie/event/ron_cumminss_walk_around_ireland. Ron Cummins and follow my progress on my facebook page. 
We would appreciate if anyone along our route (see below) could help out with a place to stay for Carol and I. If you can, please contact carolmarybrennan@gmail.com   or phone Carol on  0864061217

The Irish Heart and Lung Transplant Association is a very small charity in a large pool of very big charities represented at the Women's mini Marathon.   We are looking for people to walk, jog or run - we don't mind at all - everyone counts!     There is a mini marathon in Dublin and in Cork on the same day so you can choose which ever is nearest you!      Not only is this a very important source of funding for our small charity. Each  person taking part is creating donor awareness by wearing our teeshirt which has a very important message on the back.   

   "ONE ORGAN DONOR  COULD SAVE THE LIVES OF UP TO SEVEN PEOPLE"
