Well why not set yourself the challenge of The Great Ireland Run! The event is held in the Phoenix park on the 10th April 2011 and you, alongside the thousands of other runners, determined to make a difference, will cover a mere 10k circuit around the park and all in aid of charity. All we ask… pick CRY for your charity.

Why CRY? With no government funding and raising figures of Cardiac deaths in the young, 60 to 80% of which are under the age of 35, the Screening Centre is in need of any donations to help keep afloat and continue to help fund the Screening Centre in Tallaght Hospital, Dublin.
