Belmullet footballer Shane Nallen today starts his challenge of running 10 kilometres per day, every day for a month.
Shane is taking part in the initiative to raise funds for Grace Walsh, a child from Binghamstown, Belmullet who suffers from CMV and other conditions, and requires 24-hour care.
Shane's initial target was to raise €9,000 and had exceeded that target before he even starts the challenge today.
He's now raised the target to €10,000.
