Musician Ryan Sheridan launched Kellogg’s Fun Raise 4 Kids Campaign, in aid of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin. The musician is challenging secondary school students to come up with the ‘most creative’ ideas and events to raise much needed funds for the hospital. The winning school will be given a live performance from Ryan Sheridan for their school.
Speaking at the launch of Kellogg’s Fun Raise 4 Kids, Ryan Sheridan said: “I have been a part of a ward walk of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin at Christmas, for the past three years. To see kids with serious illnesses, often in isolation or hooked up to ventilation units, is a realistic experience and one that brings you back down to earth. The staff of the hospital work endlessly and tirelessly with a smile on their face for each kid. With the help of the schools, we can help each other to help raise some money for the hospital, and really make a difference!”
In 2012 the Children’s Medial & Research Foundation set the ambitious target of completing and delivering world class facilities for cardiac and cancer patients and their families by summer 2013. They are already half way there thanks to the generosity of the public. With the support of the Kellogg’s Fun Raise 4 Kids programme, they will be one step closer to their target of €8m.
According to Aideen Murphy, Senior Brand Manager, Kellogg’s: “With the help of secondary school students across the country, Ireland’s most ill children – and their families – will be one step closer to  state of the art facilities in 2013. This is the reason why we are asking schools to get involved with Kellogg’s Fun Raise 4 Kids. By taking part in Kellogg’s Fun Raise 4 Kids you can help Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital to provide facilities that are fitting for children and their parents.”
