 John Kelly’s video intro to the Virtual Challenge

“Sunrise Up Croagh Patrick” is an annual get-together of friends who climb Croagh Patrick or walk nearby, have a super time & raise funds for worthwhile charities fighting Neurological Diseases. Funds raised go towards providing increased Specialist Care. It was initially organised by John Kelly (St Jarlaths 1979) and supported by his University classmates and work colleagues from Hanson Regan. The event has grown and attracted wider support from many great people who have been affected by Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s, Motor Neuron Disease & Dementia. Last year’s event was on the weekend of 29 June 2019 and we had a wonderful couple of days blessed by the weather for our Climb & Walk. We had a post event dinner and we stayed at the Westport Plaza Hotel. They kindly extended a special deal this year €209 for two nights sharing B&B + 1 dinner. We are delighted to say that with everybody’s help in 2019, Sunrise Up Croagh Patrick has raised over €25,000, which is fantastic; In total that’s over €65,000 since we first started. Thank You All.  The Irish Associations for Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and Motor Neurone Diseases have used these funds  to provide specialist care and support to people with these conditions and their families.
Your support and participation in 2020 will help these 3 worthy Brain Condition charities provide even more of this much needed specialist care.

The story so far . . .

 

How a family tradition turned into an international annual gathering.

 

We’d been up Croagh Patrick a few times. Dad’s birthday is July 17th, so we’d come home for his birthday and climb Croagh Patrick that weekend.

In January 2016, my mother-in-law, Eleanor, passed away with Huntington’s disease. It wasn’t until the middle of May it dawned on us to dedicate the climb to the memory of Eleanor and in support of the Huntington Disease Association of Ireland (HDAI). Two of us climbed that year and we raised over €5k for HDAI.

When we got back to London, the team were so impressed with the pics, they immediately said “We definitely want to do this next year!”.

And so the inspiration grew. . . .family, friends, work colleagues and supporters of each of the Charities joined in the cause so we had  40 people participate in the 2017 climb resulting in a total of €15k being raised across the Charities. We are delighted to say that with everybody’s help in 2019, Sunrise Up Croagh Patrick has raised over €25,000, which is fantastic; In total that’s over €65,000 since we first started. Thank You All.  The Irish Associations for Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and Motor Neurone Diseases have used these funds  to provide specialist care and support to people with these conditions and their families.
Your support and participation in 2020 will help these 3 worthy Brain Condition charities provide even more of this much needed specialist care. We aim to make it even bigger again this year. Hopefully you can join us.

Thank you

Our Charities

“Sunriseupcroaghpatrick” is a not for profit Partnership. It is not a registered Charity but will organise events to raise funds for the chosen Registered Charities detailed below in a fully transparent and compliant manner. Can we say just how important these Associations are. These are the organisations who champion the patients and families of people who contract these neurological conditions. They are in your corner from the moment you get connected. They hold your hand throughout. The difficulty is that they are self funding and need proper help.

None of them have enough specialist nurses to help in the community.

  • IMNDA, have over 350 patients in Ireland, with 4 nurses covering the country.
  • PDAI have 12-14,000 with 5 nurses
  • And HDAI have somewhere in the region of 750 patients, they are not sure, with 3000 people at risk; they don’t have any nurses.

Ireland has 34 Neurologists; it can take 6 months to see one, even if you have the money. On average, it takes over 2 years to get a diagnosis, or it did in our case.

The Associations exist because they are needed, with a bit more help they could do so much more.

Registered charity numbers:

The Parkinson’s Association of Ireland CHY No. 10816 (YPI is a national branch of The Parkinson’s Association of Ireland)

The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) CHY 8510

Huntington’s Disease Association of Ireland

Huntington’s Disease Association of Ireland (HDAI) provides consultation, information and individualised support to those diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease (HD), their families and their health care team. CHY 10130

We also fund and promote research into the causes and treatments of MND.
