A sincere THANK YOU to all students of Cúrsa A for their support during our charity Night
Much needed funds were raised for “Katie Born to Run” or “Katie Beó le bheith Rith”
The funds raised will go towards assisting Katie O’ Halloran in her quest to purchase bionic arms, which would transform her life.
On the third of July 1991, Katie O’Halloran was born without arms and a short deformed leg. This came as a great shock to both her parents and medical professionals. Medical Professionals diagnosed Katie with a rare femur fibula ulna syndrome. Although the future at first seemed bleak, Katie overcame many obstacles, including defying medical professional’s beliefs that she would never walk. Katie’s achievements are a combination of both her sheer determination to succeed and her family’s full support for her to achieve her independence. At present Katie is undergoing her master’s degree in Public Law in NUI Galway. This organisation aims to raise funds to allow Katie to achieve her full potential in life by purchasing bionic arms. These arms would allow Katie to carry out tasks which many of us take for granted.
A special thanks to all staff members who gave their time and energy to organize the many activities on the night and especially to the Mná Tígh for the baked goods and treats and the local shops for their donations.
€825 was raised on the night for
