Organise a Fundraising Event

Fundraising is a valuable activity to keep Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) running successfully. With the funds donated and gathered by the many generous fundraisers, CRY would not be where it is today.

To date we have opened the National Screening Centre for Cardiac Risk in the Younger Persons based at Tallaght Hospital. It is anticipated that 1600 patients can be seen annually, with expansion of up to 2800 annually by 2011. Funds have been raised so far to purchase the necessary equipment to run the Centre and to fund recruitment of the non – physician staff. In order to maintain the services we provide and to secure the running of the centre, we must reach our fundraising targets.

This is where you can help CRY. CRY always welcomes any fundraising efforts from any person no matter how big or small. If you need support for a particular event please contact us and we will do our very best to assist you. We can also upload your story onto our website to help out.
