A few years ago I collected for a Charity called Dia Dhuit which is a Mental Health charity based around Fermoy. By Rowing for 12 hours myself and a friend of mine raised over €4,500 for the charity. Our bums were sore but we did it.
This year, I’m undertaking a trek to Everest Base Camp for the Meningitis Research Foundation and I’m asking for your support.
Meningitis is a terrible disease and Ireland has one of the highest notification rates for invasive meningococcal disease in Europe.
While fundraising I will be handing out information cards, leaflets and posters to help make the symptoms of Meningitis and Septicaemia known.
Unfortunately, The these symptoms often go unnoticed because they are not unlike a hangover; This puts students as the Second highest risk group.
The Money we raise will go towards Awareness campaigns, Vaccine research and to provide services for the people affected directly or indirectly by Meningitis.
Thank you all for your Donations so far. The responses have been incredible; I appreciate every single one!
