When a group of friends get together for a good cause there is no stopping them. Andrea Splendori and his 15 friends have been running together for years all around Europe. This year they decided to take on a challenge closer to home by running across Ireland from Greystones to Galway over three days to raise vital funds for our little patients in CHI at Crumlin. With 240km to cover, the group of friends will be relying on each other to complete this monumental challenge.
