That is simply too many, but together, we can make a difference.In memory of those we have lost and to highlight this scary statistic, I will be running/walking for 421 consecutive minutes, between 9:20am and 4:21pm on Sunday, May 16th, 2021.Yes – FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTY ONE MINUTES – 7 Hours and 1 Minute.I am asking you to please donate whatever you can towards Pieta House so we can make a difference. No amount is too small and every cent donated will be going towards this very worthy cause.The price of a coffee or a pint will help Pieta continue their important work around the country.How far will I go in 421 minutes? I’m not sure, but each donation will encourage me to keep going and give me another reason to finish stronger.Last year I ran a Marathon in my locality and together, we raised in excess of €6,000 for PPE for Limerick Nursing homes/respite centres and Limerick Animal Welfare, let’s see if we can go one better!(Run route to be determined at a later date, keep an eye on page for updates).Thank you in advance for your support,Tom*If any business would like to get on board:Contact Tom via social media or Email – [email protected] hotmail.comAbout Pieta: “Pieta first opened its doors in Lucan, County Dublin in 2006.
