1,000,000 Steps 24 Hour Sponsored Walk.

Blessington local, Barry Hamilton is inviting people to join him at Russborough House this month for a sponsored walk with a difference.

You can be a part of a combined one million steps challenge taking place from 12 noon at Russborough on Saturday, June 18th and Sunday, June 19th. Remember, every step counts for this fundraiser for Blessington District Day Care, St Mary’s Junior School and St Mary’s Senior School in Blessington.

Last year Barry managed a highly-impressive 1,024,568 steps in 28 days, raising close to €4,000 for Blessington and District Day Care. He started off his challenge by taking to local roads, but soon changed tack after an offer from Russborough to use our grounds instead.

Barry said: “I hope to get plenty of support over the two days and it’s for a very good cause. People can walk as much, or as little, as they want. We will also be having a treasure hunt so the event should make for the perfect family day out.”

To join Barry along the way, either morning, noon or night, every step counts, take a look at the facebook event or contact Barry on 087 9195991.
