A Mile of Kettlebell Swings for Charity

Wild Geese co founder and conditioning coach, Dave Hedges, is taking on a huge challenge.
Last year he, with the help of some of you, raised €5000 for Rehab Care by doing a mile of Walking Kettlebell Swings.
That’s over 2000 repetitions with a 16kg bell.

This year he’s upped the ante.

This time around he’ll be using a 24kg bell.

Along side him will also be a handful of his Kettlebell Fitness regulars, most of whom will also be attempting the mile and a few who will be working as a relay team.

Here’s a short video of an interview he gave where he talks about Wild Geese, Mental Health and the Mile Challenge:

Dave has set up an online fundraising page for those of you willing to sponsor him, the link to that is:

You can also buy raffle tickets from Dave at the club.

The event will take place in Irishtown Stadium from 1pm, please come down and show your support, cheer the guys on and meet some of the people who use the Rehab Care centre and will benefit directly from this event.
Here’s a map to the stadium:
