Will you get a kick out of supporting local charities Rosabel’s Rooms & ACT for Meningitis?
Galway-based charity ACT for Meningitis were accredited with All-Star charity status at a leading business summit in Croke Park last week.
They say it is better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all. The day Aoibhe Carroll was born and placed in her parents' arms, they felt a love like they never knew existed. They had four wonderful years of love, hugs, happiness, and cherished memories before she was cruelly taken from them in April 2008. Now, 10 years on in a decade in which her parents established the ACT for Meningitis charity, we hear how losing her daughter has impacted on her mother's life, how she has gained the strength to live with this loss and how, in the face of such tragedy, she has built a legacy that is not only saving lives but is rebuilding the futures of others on that same horrific journey.
Meningitis is sadly back in the news this week with the death of a little girl in Navan. You can do your bit to help raise awareness of the symptoms next month by taking part in a special running of the Remembering Aoibhe Renville Challenge which this year marks a decade since the loss of little Aoibhe Carroll.
On Saturday week, the 32nd Streets of Galway will be held, bringing thousands of runners though the heart of the city.
The living memory of a young Oranmore woman who died after contracting meningitis eight years ago will be enhanced this Sunday (June 18) when the fifth of five wishes pledged in her honour will be furthered by a Midsummer Walk in the Park (Rinville Park) to raise funds for Sadhbh’s Wish No. 5 which is supporting COPE Galway.

Don’t you just love it when a plan comes to fruition. When an objective has been reached. When a difference has been made. And in particular I love it when I see the many worthy causes here in the west set out a long term plan and then go on to reach that. I walk with pride through the Croi building in Newcastle knowing that we ran or walked or shook a bucket to help it. Each time we pass the Galway Hospice we all take some pride from having donated in some small but not insignificant way to its being and its continuation. Those who sleep out for Simon and COPE each year know that their discomfort will help reduce discomfort for those who really need their services.
