Alex, Harry, and Peter, three remarkable 11-year-old boys from Glasnevin Educate Together in Dublin, are running from Dublin to London to raise money for the Endangered Wildlife Trust.

They posted the following appeal online:

“We need your help! The global covid crisis has shown us more than ever how important it is to work together to support the future of our planet – the people, the environment and the animals within it.

We will be running together and on our own over the next few months, and we will add our distances together to make up the 535 km journey from our school to Big Ben in London. We hope you will cheer us on by donating to this very worthy charity –”

On 28 May they posted the following update:
We just want to thank all our friends and family for the most generous donations and kind words we have received so far. We are overwhelmed to have raised €788 already. THANK YOU EVERYONE.
