Perdita's Covid19 10k a Day
Perdita Quinlan - one of the many Cocooning Grannies was very sad that the mini marathon did not take place in June. A great supporter of the event, she has taken part in almost every Mini Marathons since it began and was not going to let Covid19 stop her keeping that record.
She decided to walk 10kms every day - 6 days a week and started walking around the Sophie Barat Residence gardens on April 6th and continued every day until May 3. All the time keeping within her 2km limit of course! To make the effort count she asked friends and family to support the Past Pupils Benevolent Fund to mark her achievement.

There is still money coming in but on last count she had raised an amazing €6820. That was amazing use of the Lockdown - hope you agree.
