Water Babies Splashathon

Cause Description

Water Babies, Ireland's leading baby and toddler swim school are running the Water Babies Splashathon, a sponsored swim for babies and toddlers which will take place during Water Babies classes across Ireland between 27th March to 9th April.

The Water Babies Splashathon will raise vital funds for our charity partner Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin.

During Water Babies Splashathon fundraising weeks, babies and toddlers across the country will complete a sponsored ‘Cead Mile Splashes’ for the Nazareth ward in Crumlin hospital.

Overview

The tiniest patients are cared for in the  Nazareth ward. This is one of the oldest wards in the hospital and was never designed to treat the number of patients it currently does.  Whilst each and every patient receives world class care from the hero doctors and nurses, there just isn’t enough room in the tiny 1960's cubicles for parents to be with their precious children.

To make matters worse, when there is an emergency and a baby needs urgent treatment, there is no room to get life- saving equipment to a baby in their bed – the bed needs to be brought to the door.  This year Crumlin Hospital aim to make a big change on Nazareth ward by upgrading 20 baby rooms, providing more space, light, comfort and equipment for our tiniest patients and their parents.   Each unit will cost approximately €50,000 to complete
