Story

On  29th October, I will be attempting to complete the Dublin Marathon. Should I survive this, on the 4th November I will be taking on a 8-10kmTurf Warrior obstacle course in the Connemara bog! Having covered my own entry fees and other associated costs, the full extent of what is raised will be going towards supporting the children in the Cheshire Children's Home in Zambia. This a project that Gorta-Self Help Africa & Alan Kerins have been supporting for over 10 years. There are over 1,200 children with disabilities registered under the care of this facility. Surgical interventions are provided together with prosthetic limbs and a care plan is in place to include nutritional, medical, educational and developmental goals for each child. Provision of prosthetic limbs are fully dependent on the availability of funds and each year approximately 100 persons are provided with surgery. The money raised will help to support these children through surgery and provide  aftercare to ensure these disabled children have the same health, educational and job opportunities as others in society. Any support you can provide will make a huge difference.
