Derval’s Olympic Challenge - Cork to Tokyo Virtual Challenge
We’re building a team to cover the distance of Cork to Tokyo in the month of July – in time for the Olympics Closing Ceremony on August 8th in Tokyo. Many cannot travel to the games this year, but virtually, together, we’re doing it!
With a virtual map tracking every step, I believe together as a team we can make it to Tokyo!
We’re doing this to raise funds for a Children’s Emergency Department in Cork University Hospital.
The Emergency Department is always busy and can be stressful - and taking children into such a bustling environment can heighten anxiety in an already stressful situation.
We are raising funds to create a separate Children’s Emergency Department, which will provide a calmer environment for adults and children and allow us to create a separate, more colourful, child friendly environment.
Bumps, falls and injuries happen and when they do our children deserve the best possible care - so let’s do this challenge together to ensure they get what they deserve.
