Supporting The Cause

Over the years, Keith Duffy has been organizing and participating in Charity marathons all around the country. Keith has been on a mission to raise awareness and financial support for Autism through his charity Irish Autism Action. This truly wonderful organisation was founded in 2011 by parents of children with autism. Their main objectives are to provide outreach service programming, counselling & information, diagnostic & assessment services, educational support and research & development.

Autism is known as a hidden disability, as it usually does not show signs of a physical difference. However, the current autism rate in Ireland is 1 in 100!

Keith is currently preparing for his scheduled trip to Austria to take part in the Iron Man Marathon next May. The Iron Man 70.3 event takes place in St. Pölten, Austria. And Keith now has a brand new Scott bike to train and run the gaunlet with!
