Strider Michael Treacy is raising funds for the Seaford Down’s Syndrome and Special Needs Support Group – by running two marathons in two days in Iceland this August.
Taking in the Laugavegurinn Trail, the 74km course traverses mountains, icy rivers and volcanic wastelands – quite the challenge!
Michael is looking to raise £1,825 for the Seaford Down’s Syndrome and Special Needs Support Group, an organisation which provides regular activities such as swimming and music classes for children with Downs Syndrome.
“Downs Syndrome is a disability that has always been very close to my heart as two of my younger cousins have this condition,” he says.
“I want to raise money for this amazing charity that tirelessly provides hope and support for children with special needs.”
