Gerry Cully, from Crumlin, has been working in CMRF since June 2007. At 63 years old hes just started training for the New York Half Marathon 2020 and he wants other people to join him and raise funds for some of Irelands sickest children.
"I had planned to do the New York Marathon three years ago, but I was sick, nothing serious, but was unable to take part. I wanted to do it for my 60th birthday. So three years later I've been persuaded into going for it. I absolutely love New York. Ive been going to New York for CMRF for many years with a team of men and women of all ages who take part in the NYC Marathon to support CMRF Crumlin. I've always thought Id love to be on the other side of the fence as the wonderful team pass by me on the side line. "
" I've never done a marathon before, just the marathons I run around the CMRF building on hectic days. I'm not a fast walker, but I do enjoy walking. I've a programme of training set up over the next few months and my colleagues here in CMRF are giving me lots of encouragement, so there's no getting away with it. I'm hoping other people will sign up too and walk or jog with Gerry in the New York half Marathon in 2020."
