We support young people to raise their aspirations through sport


Come 4th May 2024, I will be setting off on another 50 mile Ultra Marathon alongside my good friend John Mulholland. We will be taking on 3 peaks of the Pennine Barrier, England.

The event is an official event run by GB Ultras. Going by the promotional videos and previous race pictures, it promises to be a stunning run (providing the rain stays clear!)

I've chosen to support the Sport Changes Life Foundation. I've raised money for the guys previously on our Stride the Stadia challenge where a friend Chris and I walked 210 miles in 5 days around Northern Irelands Irish Premier League stadiums.

Off the back of this, I've volunteered in some of the school programmes from Belfast, and as far as Limavady. I have witnessed first hand the impact the programmes have on the kids!

Follow my social media for updates on progress.

Make sure you interact with my posts, liking, commenting and sharing really helps more than you can imagine.
