ONE of Ireland’s most challenging fundraising events has set off from Dublin.
Noah’s bed push beginning at Crumlin Hospital for sick children is in aid of nine beneficiaries that have supported young Noah Gooch, a six-year-old boy from Donegal who was diagnosed with cancer this year.
Noah (6) has won the hearts of thousands of people all over the world, many of whom have offered support through social media & local fundraising events.
The event has garnered the support of some of Ireland’s biggest Stars including Daniel O’ Donnell who will take part in the Donegal leg of the journey into Letterkenny which ends on Sunday evening at Letterkenny Hospital.
Irish International and Everton soccer star, Donegal’s own Seamus Coleman is lending his support along with Rachel Blackmore, the first ever female winner of the Grand National, Ruby Walsh, Padraig Harrington plus a whole host of figures from the world of entertainment and sport.
Six individuals will push the bed including Noah’s Father Lee who is a well-known figure on Highland Radio in Donegal, Shaun Doherty former Flag show host of Highland Radio, Mary Duffy, Leslie O Donnell, Denis Ferry, Brian Mc Cracken and Robert O Connor.
Noah’s parents Lee and Claire have been overwhelmed by the response so far and the kindness and support for the family and the nine chosen beneficiaries has been overwhelming.
