Cycle, Run, Jog, Walk or Crawl to support Tallaght University Hospital.
For over 20 years, staff at Tallaght University Hospital go the ‘extra mile/km’ by organising a cycle to raise vital funds for a variety of hospital services.
This year, our staff are at breaking point. They just simply can’t do it. They are under enormous pressure and need our help. They are asking for our support - individuals, families, community groups and local businesses to support this great hospital at this time of great need, and to support their plans for elderly services.
Yes, lockdown continues to be hard on everyone, but illness, isolation and prolonged home confinement is having a far greater impact on older people, particularly in terms of loneliness and reduced physical activity leading to increased frailty. Are you in position to get out and to get active?
You can opt for any form of exercise - cycle, run, walk, jog, crawl, swim , really any form of exercise where you can record your kilometres. They need our support and want you to take up the challenge for TUH. You can start as small as 1km and go all the way to 1,000km, adhering to current government guidelines of course!
The TUHF Santa Dash will raise vital funds in aid of older peoples’ services in TUH.
Will you join Tallaght University Hospital Foundation team of Santa’s?
We want to raise€30,000 to support the creation of Europe’s first centre of excellence for ageing research and gerontechnology.
TUH is on course to become a global hub, collaborating with technology providers and innovators in Ireland and around the world with the sole aim of improving the health and wellbeing of the over 65’s.
By getting involved, backing our staff and our hospital we can respond meaningfully in addressing these issues over the coming years. With technology rapidly evolving, we want to harness what we can to improve the lives of older people, enhance their independence and prevent disease.
Can you play your part? Will you step up to translate your kilometres into funds and support our services. Get your friends and family, get everyone involved, get festive and have lots of fund. Just don’t forget to post your support online!
