Support the Run for Adam Burke


On July 20th 2016 Adam Burke, a twenty year old man, suffered a devastating stroke following an injury during a GAA football match playing for his local club Two Mile House, Naas, Co.Kildare. The type of stroke Adam suffered during that game could have resulted in his death but for his incredible fitness and will to survive.


The impact of this accident on the pitch a year ago has left Adam with significant life-long challenges. The stroke caused paralysis of his right arm and hand, weakness of his right leg, increased fatigue and crucially has impacted on the area of the brain that controls speech and language. He spent six months in gruelling rehabilitation in Beaumont Hospital and the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) and has made wonderful gains but still has a long way to go. It is estimated that the long term cost of Adam’s Rehabilitation will be in excess of €1,000,000.


We are requesting donations to help Adam recover from this serious injury. For individuals to make personal donations there is also a gofundme link at https://www.gofundme.com/runforadamburke and would be hugely appreciated if you could communicate this link to your Club Members. The Fundraising Activity will comprise of a Fun Run, details on how to register at www.runforadamburke.org and will be followed by RTE’s Marty Morrissey hosting a celebrity GAA Panel including Davy Fitzgerald, Joe Brolly, Michael Deignan and Tomás Ó Sé

★ GAA Summer Camp 2017 ★ Thank You ★

 

We finished our GAA Summer Camp on Friday 18th of August and treated all the kids to a barbecue. The week was very successful and we were blessed with the good weather. We had 100 children attending the camp over the 5 days and by all accounts they had a ball.

We managed to make some extra money for the club and this will be used to further improve our facilities. We had 24 to 27 helpers assisting Ian Power with the camp and Ian was very happy the way everything went. Much gratitude and appreciation to Ian Power who gave up 5 days to run this camp.

We would like to thank Noel Shaw for his assistance all week, and for helping out with the barbecue and thanks to the ladies who came up on Friday. Mairead and Becky O'Rian helped with bbq. Ronan Lynch, Sean O'Rian and Brendan McGrath gave up time and made a big impression with their mentoring skills. Camogie PRO, Eileen Goold, took & posted the pictures from the camp during the week & kept us updated.

Stars of the show were the young coaches who kept the kids occupied with the expert coaching and the fun games

We had a number of people asking if there was a camp at Halloween, and it looks very likely that there will be. Hopefully nearer the time we will be in a position to give more details.
