It in turn will be supporting three charities – the Paddy Wallace Fund for Autism, Buddy Bench Ireland and Fighting Blindness. As he made his way round Ireland, Stevey was cheered on by locals on his grueling journey. He has shown remarkable determination and courage on his way and has been a true inspiration.
The fundraiser is also helping to raise awareness of autism through the placing of special buddy benches at schools throughout Ireland.
The former Ballymacnab man – who lives with his wife Catherine and three children on the outskirts of Armagh – is due to finish his 60 ultra marathon goal on July 30 when he arrives back in the city.
