Father prepares for Marathon while iCARE ball is just around the corner
AN INISHOWEN father is running the Dublin Marathon next month to raise money for a vital local autism charity.
Local dad Kevin McLaughlin will be taking on the gruelling 26.2 mile marathon in Dublin next month to raise money for iCARE in Buncrana.
Kevin and his wife Mary have three children Martin, 19, Patrick, seven, and six-year-old Michael who all have different degrees of autism. All three boys use the iCARE centre in Buncrana.
