CRY held an informal open day at the CRYP Centre

CRY recently held an informal open day at the CRYP Centre to which supporters and donors for CRY were invited to view the facilities for patients.

It was specifically held to thank The Trinity Med Day Committee for their significant enthusiasm and donation of funds which resulted in the purchase of an exercise bicycle in honour of their class mate Eamon O'Coine who died from SCD. Eamon's mother was present.

The event was also an opportunity to thank Clair McCaffrey for organising a fashion fundraising in Templemore and to welcome other supporters of CRY.

CRY’S Amazing Team at TriAthlone

A team from Mount Temple in County Westmeath are taking part in TriAthlone on July 18th to raise funds for CRY. Waterways Ireland TriAthlone is Irelands largest triathlon and has become a very popular event with a race for everyone; from Beginners, to Intermediates and Elites. It takes place in the town of Athlone Co. Westmeath every year. Next year Athlone plays host to the staging of the European Triathlon Championships and this year is therefore very much a trial year with all organisers very busy with preparations. The event is divided into 4 different categories to suit people of all ages and abilities with the Mount Temple team participating in all the events.

Triathlon Event:
200m swim/20km bike/5km run

Sprint Distance:
0.75 km swim / 20 km bike / 5 km run

Olympic Distance:
1.5km swim / 40km bike / 10 km run

ITU European Cup:
1.5 km swim / 40 km bike / 10 km run

On the 20th of December 2006, a young local man from Mount Temple passed away due to sudden death. He was a good friend to many of the local people and is deeply missed by all. Last year a group of local people ranging in the ages from 15 to 50 joined together and participated in the TriAthlone. We decided to raise money for CRY- Cardiac Risk in the Young as it was a charity that a lot of us could relate to due to the loss of our good friend. Last year we raised over 2,500euro for the charity. This year we have decided to take part in the massive event again on the 18th of July. Our Mount Temple team has grown and we now have over 30 people participating from our local village for CRY. We hope, this year, that we can raise twice as much for CRY and we are all very excited to take part in this year’s TriAthlone.
