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
