Ladies Mini Marathon 2014 - Thank You!


A big thank you to all the ladies who did the Flora Women's Mini Marathon for us last Monday.   This year we had our biggest group ever out there walking, jogging and running for the Irish Heart and Lung Transplant Association, creating donor awareness and making a difference.   In the sea of 40,000 teeshirts for lots of different charities it was fantastic to sometimes come across some other IHLTA ones on the way around!    Here are a few of the photos -  Well done to everyone! 


"The IHLTA have now registered with my and the link for this is as follows:-   

This will make donating and fund raising so much easier.   So if you are participating in the mini marathon or organising a fundraising event like an afternoon tea party, cycle,  coffee morning or donating to the IHLTA instead of gifts for occasions, it is now very simple to create your own fundraising page and nominate the IHLTA as your Chosen Charity.   
My is an excellent website with clear illustrations and a helpline for any queries.

Circle of Life Garden of Commemoration and Thanksgiving

The Circle of Life Garden of Commemoration and Thanksgiving in Salthill in Galway officially opened on Tuesday 6th May 2014.   Our congratulations to Martina and Denis whose only son Eamon  an Organ Donor, was the inspiration for this beautiful Garden commemorating Organ Donors from all over the world.   They had an amazing team of people working along side them and they should be extremely proud of what they have achieved.  You can read all about it on their website   but we would urge you to visit and see it for yourselves.
