Avita Communications, Sleepless, Gray Office Park and the team here at Call Pal have come together to raise money for a great cause by running in the Galway Bay Marathon on the 6th of October 2018.

With little to no experience, most of us will find this a real challenge (as you can imagine) so we will be taking part in the 10K run. Gordon will take on the half marathon! So look, help us out and donate to Cancer Care West.

We will be putting our hearts and souls into this challenge so please support us to raise money for Cancer Care West.

Fingers crossed we make it to the finish line and don’t worry we will be keeping you updated in the lead up to the big day.

Let the training begin!
