Event Details

Our little boy Senan was born in January 2020 in The Coombe Womens & Infants University Hospital in Dublin.  He was born at 31 weeks gestation.  Looking back at that moment, a journey began for us that manifest a strength within us that we never knew before, the NICU journey and beyond.  After a number of drawbacks in the very early days, including a bleed on the brain at 1 week old, Senan spent just short of six weeks in the neonatal unit in The Coombe.  Leaving hospital four days after giving birth without your baby, is one of the most nerve-wracking and surreal experiences any parent could encounter.  However, knowing that we were leaving our little newborn preemie in the safe and experienced hands that we left Senan in made this journey home and the days and weeks that followed, somewhat more bearable. The care and attention that Senan received from the doctors and nurses in NICU in The Coombe is something that will reside with us forever.  A phonecall at any time of the day or night to check in on how Senan was doing was always received with a happy greeting at the other side of the phone.  They shine a beaming light through those days of darkness and uncertainty that surround a families NICU journey.  Senan's sisters and brothers never met him in person until he left NICU, but they listened to these phonecalls and saw endless amounts of videos and photos that never left them under any illusion that their baby brother wasn't being looked after like a little king!  He was a little trooper through it all, and his little fighting nature gave us strength every day.

Before Senan's discharge from NICU, when we thought things were really looking bright, we received the news that any parent would dread.  Our beautiful little boy had been diagnosed with congenital heart defects - ASD, VSD & pulmonary stenosis.  Senan was immediately placed under the expert care of the cardiac team in Crumlin hospital.  We are so grateful to his cardiologist and team for the care he has received since then, and indeed into the forseeable future.  Any trip to Crumlin has been made stress free by the wonderful staff there, and with only one parent allowed to attend appointments and admissions, due to the covid 19 pandemic, we have always been treated with the utmost compassion on these occasions.

Senan's siblings (with a little help from mammy and daddy) are going to combination run/walk/cycle 600 kilometers over the next month.  We are hoping to raise vital funds for the two aforementioned hospitals, as a token of our gratitude to them for the service they have provided and continue to provide us with.  We would hope that families in our situation in the future could reap the same benefits and experiences as we have.  We will be forever indebted to the doctors and nurses in NICU and Crumlin for their expertise and the care which Senan has and continues to receive from them.  The monies raised from this fundraiser will go directly to NICU in The Coombe and The Heart Centre, CHI @ Crumlin.  These vital funds are used for things such as to purchase essential equipment and for ongoing research implementation, which will benefit many babies born too small, too sick, too soon, and children with heart conditions and their families, both now and in the future.

If anyone would like to join us in completing kms, in your own part of the country or world, please send us a message.  We would be delighted to have you on board!!

Many thanks in advance for your support in assisting us to achieve our goal.  All donations are greatly appreciated.

And that's a wrap.....!! 😍💪😍 Our #siblings600kmforsenan fundraiser challenge is now complete. Senan's siblings crossed the finish line on Friday evening - spot the ultra competitive 3 year old who didn't want anyone else to win the race 🤣🤣 1201.09kms later and €7575 later, we are one happy family 😊. This far exceeds our original target of €2,000 and 600kms over the month. We would like to thank all of you who supported our challenge with your extremely generous donations and those who took part (if those people/families could send on their kms to us over the next few days, we will compile them all). The funds raised will go towards ensuring that babies born prematurely and babies and children with heart defects will have access to world-class equipment and treatment both now and into the future. We are thrilled to have raised funds to benefit both NICU in The Coombe hospital, where Senan was born and spent the first few weeks of life, and the Children's Heart Centre @ CHI Crumlin. A big thanks to daddy, who took over 100% of the reigns to ensure the kids could complete their challenge, bringing them out and about to ramp up their kms, when I was unable to participate during the final two weeks of the challenge. We have been able to keep our iDonate page active for an extra couple of days, so if anyone wants to make a last minute donation, the page will close in 48 hours.

We are absolutely overwhelmed by the response to our fundraiser https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11400843_siblings-600km-for-senan.html We set our target at €2000 to split evenly between both charities and are amazed that we have increased our fundraising target 4 times and raised a massive €3.5k in one week 😍 The kids panicked when we showed them the money raised so far and thought they'd have to complete 1200kms if we doubled our original target 🤣🤣 Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. People's generosity is entirely boundless, and we appreciate every cent raised and every km walked/ran/cycled for our little man. Week 1 of our challenge finishes tomorrow, and we look forward to continuing for the month for these 2 amazing hospitals who have been absolutely fantastic to Senan!! Drop us a message to join in the fitness fun and we will accumulate all at the end of April. Here's to week 2 of #siblings600kmforsenan 💪👊👏 https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11400843_siblings-600km-for-senan.html
