We have dedicated this area to pay special tribute to the extremely generous people who have made a contribution to CRY. It is because of these amazing people that CRY is able to keep our doors open as we do not receive any government funding. All at CRY would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who has provided us with support.
Monday 5th August - Nuala Sullivan from Delgany, County Wicklow took on the challenge of the Dun Laoghaire Bay 10K for Cry. Nuala lost a cousin Elaine O'Keeffe from sudden cardiac death in 2012 and after Elaine's sudden death the extended family decided to support Cry at events in her memory. Nuala's completed the 10k in the fantastic time of 57 minutes! She had hoped to complete in under an hour and was verypleased with her time. The fantastic sum of €430.00 was raised and huge thanks from Cry to Nuala for her fundraising on our behalf and thanks to family, friends and colleagues who donated so generously.
