March 4th will see 27 ladies mainly St. Sylvester’s Gaelic4Mothers players & one lucky husband(!!) travel to London to participate in The Big Half, a half marathon starting at Tower Bridge and finishing in Greenwich.
The women travelling from our club all have different running standards, from beginners to the more experienced but what they all do have in common is the charity which they have chosen to run for, Aoife's Clown Doctors.
Their fellow G4M&O teammate Aine Henrdick & her family suffered the horrific loss of their daughter Aoife in 2012.
St. Sylvester’s G4M&O (Aoife’s Running Clowns!) are choosing to fundraise for their amazing cause.
Aoife Hendrick (5) attended Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin from May to August 2012 for treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Tragically, Aoife lost her short battle and died that summer only 4 months after being diagnosed.
In 2014, as part of Aoife's legacy, her parents Aine and Adrian, set up Aoife's Clown Doctors Ireland as entertainers who go into the children’s wards of Crumlin Children’s Hospital in Dublin twice a week, to bring some fun and smiles to the families there.
Aoife’s Clown Doctors are a team of professional performers trained to work in hospitals. They help create fun, laughter and creativity on the wards by parodying medical procedures and hospital jargon, helping to ease the fear and stress for children and parents. Oversized medical equipment, 'red-nose' transplants, 'cat' scans and funny bone examinations are just a few examples of what might take place during a visit from a Clown Doctor.
Aoife’s Clown Doctors bring smiles and laughter to so many sick children in Crumlin and hopefully in the very near future they will be spreading the smiles in Temple Street Children's Hospital & Tallaght Hospital too.
