Thank you for being part of Team Cliona's for the Irish Life Dublin City Marathon - helping us raise awareness & funds for families caring for a child with a life limiting illness.
Committing to participating in the Dublin City Marathon is a huge commitment in terms of training so we in Cliona's really appreciate the additional commitment of flying the flag for Cliona's and raising awareness of and support for the families caring for a child with a life limiting illness.
Cliona's believes no family should suffer financially when caring for a sick child but the reality is very different
Cliona's provides financial support to these families to help with some of the significant non medical costs of caring while their child is in hospital or at home. These costs include but are not limited to accommodation, travel, diesel, car parking, child minding costs, specialist equipment and much more.
These costs can amount to between €10 -15,000 per annum an can place a family under significant pressure as they aleady are trying to cope with their child diagnosis
We have supported over 1,200 families all across Ireland since 2008 and this ytd up to the end of April 2023 have distributed a total of €218,800 between 88 families
YOUR SUPPORT IS HUGELY APPRECIATED
YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A REAL DIFFERENCE
