Mr Hammie, his two lovely sisters Moira and Maeve and a large number of other people were running, jogging and in Moira and Mr Hammie's case, Briskly Walking the 3rd of the 32 Marathons in a very sunny Bray, County Wicklow today.
Maeve, Moira and Uncle Gary came over from the U.K. especially to take part and raise funds for Irish Autism Action, The Irish Cancer Society and local Autism Groups and schools like our own Saplings Rathfarnham.
We scooted around them in the Qashqai tooting and waving and after a trip to McDonalds and a quick pitstop at the Bray Amusements to use the loo, we met them on the very windy seafront for the finish.
Maeve jogged it and was in first, so we walked out to meet Aunty Moira and Daddy and Gracie helped them over the final straight:
A big hug for Daddy
Meeting Aunty Maeve in Pink, Moira in Black and Coach Uncle Gary holding the smokes and other refreshments for the Brave Finishers.
If you want to help top up Maeve and Moira's fantastic total of €1300, Go Here to Maeve's Mycharity link. Thankyou to everyone who supported Maeve and Moira and thank you so much for both of them for making the trip. xx
If you want to help Mr Hammie to achieve his target online fundraising go here to his slightly lonelier Mycharity link. (he has a bit of offline fundraising to put in there)
Thanks to everyone who has already sponsored Mr Hammie. I know these are difficult times and there are a lot of really good causes that need your help.
There are another 29 marathons to go, if you are game, Go Here and give it a go!
Mr Hammie is considering doing the Kerry one now just to give you twice the value for your money! (and another day walking in the fine Irish Countryside)
