Someone I don’t think I’ve ever met ran the Dublin Marathon today and fundraised to support Pádraig’s rehabilitation. Following two years of trying to keep my job going. Following another two years of carer’s leave (at a social welfare rate). Following consideration of going back to a job that was not really there for me any longer. At a time when not even the care for Pádraig was working. I am now on a career break with no salary. And there is young person. Running a marathon. To fundraise for Pádraig.

It’s a world of two extremes. Both, in their own way, incredibly amazing.
