He is the well known face of the Tatler Jack - and now he's set himself a challenge to run 170 miles for the Kerry Hospice Foundation.

For the month of November David Looney plans to run 170 miles to raise funds for Palliative Care Unit UHK through Kerry Hospice.

He is running in memory of his sister-in-law, Geraldine O'Connor, who passed away last November after a five year battle with cancer.

Geraldine was only 49 years of age when she passed.

"In her final weeks and months Geraldine was a patient of Palliative Care Unit where she was cared for by the most amazing staff," he said.

"The care she received and the facilities provided to her and her family gave her loved ones great comfort in what was the most challenging time of their lives. This fundraiser is to give back and to thank those amazing staff of this great facility."

David will start on November 1 and finish on Geraldine’s first anniversary on November 30.
Updates of his run can seen on Tatler Jack social media pages and on the GoFundMe page '170 Miles in November in memory of Geraldine' where he has a €2,000 goal set up.
