The Kildare Senior Hurlers along with the Kildare Minor Hurling team have already exceeded their €4,000 Roar For Ruairi fundraising target, half-way through their challenge.
The players began a 40 hour continuous run on Friday night, and will finish on Sunday morning.
Ruairi is a 6 year old boy from Clane who has been diagnosed with a very rare degenerative and life-limiting neurological condition.
The run is to raise funds for refurbishment of his home in accordance with his needs, and has raised €6225, to date.
