Organise a Fundraising Event

Organising a Fundraising Event

Fundraising is a valuable activity to keep Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) running successfully. Without 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 Younger Persons based at Tallaght Hospital. Our aim is to see 1,500 patients annually. 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.

There are many great fundraisers that take place throughout the year. If you would like to fundraise for CRY on any of the ideas events below, drop us a line at info@cry.ie
