A novel fundraising event is taking place whereby Doctors and Frontline Staff are doing the Walk and Families are doing the Talk!
The Challenge? The Wicklow Way – 135km Relay over 24 hours in August.
Why? The reason is that ground-breaking research into a cure for the most common genetic cause of Sudden Cardiac Arrest/Death in a young person, Long QT Syndrome, is being carried out in Galway. Funds are running out and €30,000.00 is needed urgently to continue this project so Cardiologists and the healthcare workers from the three family screening centres: Mater Heart House; Crumlin Children’s Hospital and ourselves here in the CRY Centre have undertaken to walk/run the Wicklow Way in 24 hours as part of a relay team.
From the CRY Centre Dr. Deirdre Ward, Dr. Derek Crinion, Helen Connaughton, Rita Kinsella, Mark Russell, Rachel Morgan, JingLi Li and Lucia Ebbs are taking part (running or walking).
❗️❗️Our relay baton will be a scroll of the names of young people who have died of SADS. If you would like your young loved one’s name included, please let us know – please email [email protected]❗️❗️
