As featured in our Christmas Showcase email which was sent to all members, this year during the week of our Christmas Showcase’s 13th – 19th December we will be running a fundraiser for a cause very close to our hearts.
Fundraiser Appeal Info
This year we are supporting one of our gym families. We have had the gymnasts of this family as members in the gym for a number of years and have been aware of their difficult quest to organise specialist surgery in the US that is not available in Ireland, or anywhere in Europe for their physically disabled 7 year old daughter, who was born with a very rare orthopaedic condition. If successful this surgery will improve her quality of life, reduce her pain and improve her mobility.
The good news is that their health insurance agreed to cover the surgery in the US, at a specialised center and it will be in early December. The bad news is that they just found out, that it won’t cover the months of extensive specialist physical therapy and rehabilitation required that must be carried out in the US following the surgery. The cost is a significant amount and all the funds raised will directly go towards the physical therapy costs, we hope to be able to support them as much as possible. Sugarloaf Gymnastics will donate €1 for every €10 raised by our members.
What can you do to help?
To start this fundraiser off we would ask you to please donate whatever you feel comfortable with when you attend your gymnasts show. Collectors will be on hand as you leave the show with collection buckets, as the saying goes “every little helps“!
