A message from the Wildman of Tara

Amy who will launch the Dawn Run on Tara on Saturday.

I just want to remind you that this year’s Hill of Tara Dawn Run is on Saturday 14th June at 4am and we want you to join us. Over the past eight years we have raised vital funds for Crumlin Children's Hospital and this year they have three special projects they need to fund:

1. A refurb of St John's Cancer ward.

2. A new out-patients clinic.

3. A Complementary Therapies programme.

The hospital don’t get any government funding for these projects. They need our help - they need your help. Amy is our inspiration for doing the Tara Dawn Run this year. The way she approaches life is a credit to her.

When Amy was born, she had her right leg amputated from the knee down as her foot and lower leg had not developed as normal during pregnancy. Since she was a baby she has had attend Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin for check-ups and sometimes for excruciating limb lengthening operations which would be difficult for any adult to cope with never mind a little eight year old like Amy. But she is a true hero and never lets her problems and pain get her down. Even in the toughest times she always has that winning smile on her face. With the developments in prosthetics and the incredible work the hospital do, Amy continues to grow and enjoy a normal childhood.

Amy will be leading out the Tara Dawn Run this year as our inspiration and guest of honour. Princess of Tara for a night!

People can join Amy by registering on www.taradawnrun.ie . We will do our level best to make it a morning to remember.

Thank you for being part of something special.

The Wildman of Tara.
