We need your help!
We're asking you to Click 4 Crumlin and help us buy a PCR machine which will allow the doctors in Crumlin Children's Hospital to quickly identify the presence of the Covid-19 virus in a young patient's body. This machine will help doctors to identify children who may be sick with the virus and also, importantly, to find and exclude the virus in children who may need urgent care for other serious illnesses so their treatment can continue.
On Wednesday 27th May, 40 students from Clongowes will each run 6.5km at 11.15am in their own localities - together we will run the Duck Push 260km!
At the start of June for the past 26 years, the Transition Year students in Clongowes Wood College SJ, Clane, Co Kildare have pushed a 3M high duck from Crumlin Children's Hospital to Limerick - a grueling journey of 260kms. This fundraising initiative is known as 'The Duck Push'. Over the years, we have raised over €2M for the very sick and vulnerable children in Crumlin. This year, due to the restrictions imposed on travel, we cannot hit the road with the duck.
Please help us reach our goal of €50,000 to buy a PCR machine for the wonderful doctors, nurses, staff and most importantly the sick children that are in the care of Crumlin Children's Hospital.
Every little will help as we ask you, to Click-4-Crumlin!
