Gerry Duffy came to prominence in 2010 when along with a friend Ken Whitelaw, he ran 32 marathons in 32 days and in the process helped to raise over €500,000 for Irish Charities. That feat was achievement enough in itself, but when you consider that five years previously he was a heavily overweight smoker.
