Kevin Donoghue and Daniel Fitzsimmons are legal eagles by day, and marathon men by night!
Read our latest press release to find out more about their latest efforts to raise money for charity by successfully completing the Liverpool marathon.
Kevin Donoghue and Daniel Fitzsimmons (pictured) of Donoghue Solicitors completed the Liverpool Marathon on 9 October 2011, raising nearly £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The hard-working duo both work at leading Merseyside law firm Donoghue Solicitors. Six months ago they decided that they were going to run the Liverpool marathon for charity and set in place a strict training plan which ensured they were fully prepared.
As Kevin Donoghue (on the right in the picture) explains, ‘there were some sacrifices. We ran most days and would even go running on Friday night rather than staying home watching t.v. or going to the pub!’
Kevin and Dan completed the 26.2 mile marathon around Liverpool and Wirral in 3 hours 56 minutes and 4 hours 54 minutes respectively. Daniel comments that, ‘it was my first marathon. Although I lost a toe-nail and have badly blistered feet, I am glad I did it.’
They are especially proud of the fact that they have been able to raise nearly £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity providing nursing and other practical support to those affected by the disease.
As Kevin Donoghue points out, ‘we all know someone who has been affected by cancer. Reminding ourselves of our fundraising goals gave us both that extra push to finish the race.’
Kevin and Daniel are still accepting sponsorship for the marathon via the website http://www.justgiving.com/Kev-and-Dan.
