The Donegal GAA team and management is hosting a charity event to raise funds for ten-month old baby Olivia 'Livie' Mulhern. Livie was recently diagnosed with a rare and serious genetic neuromuscular condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and needs urgent surgery in the USA which costs over €2 million.
We're encouraging members of the public to donate to Livie's cause by sharing images of their favourite landmarks on Instagram using the hashtag #Love4IrelandLove4Livie, while donating €5 and tagging five others to do the same.
Our fundraiser campaign will culminate in a charity cycle on Sunday, 19th July, where players will set off from nine different locations and cycle to Ballybofey. We're timing it so that we will arrive in McCumhaill Park at roughly the same time, and between us, we plan to stop off in the town areas of all 39 Donegal GAA football clubs on the day and meet club members, before getting back on our bikes. We're inviting each of the clubs to join us in our fundraising efforts on the day to help raise as much as possible for this very special cause.
All donations will go to Livie's family and their attempt to raise funds for her treatment.
