Ron reaches his final week of his coastal walk around Ireland to mark 18 years since his transplant - Completing the equivalent of 60 marathons in just 3 months
Ron and Carol Cummins finish their walk around the coast of Ireland on Sunday 20th September at 12 noon in the Circle of Life Donor Commemorative Garden in Salthill in Galway. The Garden commemorates all Organ Donors world wide and this is why they decided to start and finish the walk in this special place.
They have touched every town around the coast of Ireland and met many people on the way. The original schedule which is posted (although it is a week out due to a change of schedule) shows just how much of Ireland they have covered in the 93 days of walking.
If you want to join them for a few KMs or find them on their route and cheer them on - these are the last few stops.
