Camino Try for CRY
- 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
Aidan O’Mahony’s Inspiring Fundraising Challenge takes off.
Our Ambassador Aidan O’Mahony, in collaboration with his close friend Eoin O’Shea, have launched their unique fundraising initiative with CRY Ireland, “Try for CRY”, scheduled to run from November 1st to December 14th. Instead of embarking on the traditional Camino, Aidan and Eoin are challenging participants to complete a leg of the Camino from the comfort of their own homes. The aim of the challenge is to get people out walking / jogging / running the distance of the Camino (a leg of it).
The beauty of “Try for CRY” lies in its inclusivity, with an open invitation for everyone to take part. The primary goal is to inspire individuals to step out, whether in their living rooms, gardens, or local parks, and complete a distance equivalent to a Camino leg, all while contributing to CRY Irelands crucial cause.
Aidan and Eoin will partake in the 200km challenge, but participants can tailor their challenge by choosing from a variety of distances, including 60k, 100k, 180k, or 200k, accommodating a wide range of fitness levels and preferences.
Aidan O’Mahony commented on the fundraiser: “ ‘Try for CRY’ is all about coming together and challenging ourselves for a cause that’s close to our hearts. Even if we can’t walk the Camino physically, we can walk it in spirit from our own homes, parks, gyms and that’s a powerful way to make a difference. So I encourage everyone to join in and make sure to tag myself and CRY Ireland on social media to follow along on your journeys.”
