Event description

Description

A charity concert to help raise funding for the walk while you can (www.wwyc.ie), supporting motor neurone disease. A number of choirs from our parish supporrted by special guests will hold a concert on 22 June at 8pm in support of Fr Tony Coote, parish priest of Kilmacud and Mount Merrion.

Why support this concert?

In March 2018 Fr Tony was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. For a man with untold energy levels as well as a contagious zest for life, this news came as a bolt of lightning. Tony found himself part of a vastly under-resourced medical world of lengthy waiting lists and over-burdened medics. Never one to be struck down by adversity, Tony came to the decision to walk the length of Ireland in order to raise funds and to help highlight the need for further funding in this area. "Rather than just complaining about these facts I want to use my time and my voice to do something about it. To this end we invite you to become part of Walk While You Can, to donate, walk with us, organise a fundraising event or offer accommodation to around 6 of us doing the whole walk."

All funds will be donated for research for new medication RMN and to the IMNDA for the care of those living with the illness.
