Nearly there.....

If you're fed up reading our posts about the challenges, we can't blame you, we've been in your ear for months now. There's a reason though; suicide and self-harm are even more persistent than we are. You can look up the numbers for yourself if you like, but take it from me that they're frightening. They're even more frightening for anyone dealing with them, because they're in crisis or someone they care about is. That's why we have to keep telling you what we're doing and asking you to help.

You can look around the rest of this site to see what we've been up to www.kevinandedel.com and you can look at www.pieta.ie to see the services they provide which were trying to support, but to sum it up, we have hiked, run marathons, swum miles and climbed high mountains and we've told you all about it so you would donate money to Pieta House. It's not the most complicated formula, but it's what we can do and in the face of something as scary and difficult to deal with as suicide, we have to do what we can.

The good news is you won't have to listen to us for much longer. We gave ourselves the whole of 2017 to do this and gave it as much energy as we could, but now we're coming to the last two events, a quiz where we challenge you and a 50 mile run across the Wicklow Mountains where we challenge common sense.....

We have been blessed to have your support for everything we've done so far and we are extremely grateful. We'd be further thankful if you could go to the home page and use the buttons there to make a donation, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and twitter and to spread word of our last few weeks of the challenges. We know not everyone is in a position to make a donation and nobody should feel under pressure to do so, but you can follow and share and that helps too.

You can donate here  and 100% of your donation will go to Pieta House, where it will absolutely go to good use.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts and tired legs, Kevin and Edel.
