Dublin2Donegal #4Séimí


On Sunday 24th of October 2021 Barry, Dave, Eamon and Eoin will begin the challenge to run 7 Half Marathons in 7 days. This is our fourth attempt to run this challenge following COVID restrictions but we are determined we reach our goal this year. 


Setting off from the Sandymount hotel in Dublin City on October 24th and finishing in Donegal Town 7 days and 8 counties later!


Our story:


Our Make-A-Wish Ireland story began with the 2016 Dublin City Marathon and an initial €5,000 being raised. Three years and Nine marathons between us later we have raised over €30,000 to help Make a Wish Ireland grant wishes in Séimí Brennan’s name.


2019 marked a year of rest which allowed us to prepare for our biggest challenge to date.


Dublin2Donegal #4Séimí – 7 Half Marathons in 7 Days Challenge


Having firstly hoped to complete the challenge in April 2020 we have kept up our training to ensure that each of us will run a half marathon plus on all of the 7 days. All monies raised will result in wishes granted in the name of our Super Hero Séimí Brennan.


 Séimí’s story:


Séimí was diagnosed with a brain tumor just a few weeks after he was born. Séimí battled bravely through surgeries, chemo and all his treatment. He charmed everyone who was lucky enough to meet with his cheeky smile.


Make-A-Wish Ireland organised for Séimí, his Mammy Orna, Daddy Dave and little sister Nia to go away on holidays sadly just before they were due to leave Séimí became too unwell to travel. On the 3rd of September 2017 Séimí aged 3 years, shed his demons and grew his angel wings. He is now at rest.


All monies raised by our challenge will be donated to Make-A-Wish Ireland in the name Séimí Brennan and all wishes granted with this will be in little Séimí’s name.


We are going to blog our journey from the training right through to the finish line and we plan to create an online documentary including some of the special Wish Children we will meet along the way.


Please help us hit our €30,000 target!


Thanks all


Barry, Dave, Eamon & Eoin
