Funds raised by the participants of this year’s Mini Marathon will go towards supporting CRY’s screening service in Tallaght University Hospital for those affected by Sudden Cardiac Death. This year, CRY Ireland has set an ambitious task to build a new and expanded the CRY Centre. The centre will be the result of a unique alliance between Tallaght University Hospital, the Department of Health and CRY Ireland. To achieve this ambitious task, we’re going to need unprecedented support in 2019.
This partnership development with Tallaght University Hospital and the HSE will cost a total of €1.2 million of which CRY has committed to raising €880,000 from public donations. Speaking about CRY and raising funds for the Mini Marathon Lucia Ebbs, Chief Executive Officer of CRY Ireland said: “We look forward to the Mini Marathon each year and it was great to see so many ladies, old friends and new, participate in aid of CRY. The money raised from those who ran the Mini Marathon this year will contribute to our new screening facility in Tallaght University Hospital. CRY has a target of €880,000 to build the new facility and the money raised from the Mini Marathon will move us closer to this building materialising, thank you to all who took part and raised much-needed funds.” Approximately two people under the age of 35 die every week in Ireland from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) is an Irish charity that offers free screening and support to those who have lost loved ones to SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome).
