Event Details

My name is Uisneach (pronounced Ush-Knock).  I am ten years old.  I am a wheelchair user.  I live with a rare genetic condition called 1p36 Micro-Deletion Syndrome.  When it was diagnosed the doctors were not able to tell my parents if I would ever be able to walk or talk.  I used to communicate using sign language and through my iPad.  But because of services like Enable Ireland, through which I get physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and occupational therapy I can now walk for short distances and talk for Ireland!

But services like those offered by Enable Ireland have been impacted hard by COVID-19.  That is why I have set myself a challenge to walk unaided for 1km in support of Enable Ireland.

I have already started my training.  I walk around my local park almost every evening.  My aim is to be able to walk for 1km unaided by June 13.

I know times are tough for lots of people but people with disabilities have been hit particularly hard.  I would really appreciate if you could give whatever you can so that services like those offered by Enable Ireland can continue.

I really like encouragement and am highly motivated by people cheering and clapping.  But since COVID-19 restrictions will probably still be in place by June 13 I would ask that you send short video messages of encouragement to my Dad saying things like: “Go on Uisneach, you can do it!”, “Keep going Uisneach!”, “Well done Uisneach!” as well as plenty of cheering and clapping.

You can send your short video clips to my Dad, Michael at [email protected]

With just over one week to go we are delighted to say that Uisneach has smashed his fundraising target of €10,000 - as of today (Friday 5th June) the total stands at €11,900. We have been blown away by the generosity of people and the kinds words they've had for Uisneach. He is training hard and is determined to complete this challenge. Thank you all for believing in him and giving so generously to Enable Ireland.
