Fundraising for Cieran will be never ending. As a family we want Cieran to have the best chance of a normal life, and this includes having prosthetic legs that provide him with full mobility and the opportunity to have the independence he deserves, custom made flippers to allow him to swim and our new goal is to send Cieran to swim with Winter the dolphin at the Clearwater Aquarium in Florida. Cieran previously received his legs from the NHS, however these limited Cierans movements due to their weight which caused him discomfort if worn for too long and he struggled to do everyday day tasks due to the lack of movement in his ankles. When you next kick a football or walk up a hill, please don’t take it for granted, as all we wish for Cieran is that he can one day carry out these simple functions!
We are looking to raise a minimum of £15,000 PER YEAR for 2 sets of legs to enable Cieran to ‘Walk Tall’. Can you help?
Events planned for this year are: Gary will run the Manchester 10k on Sunday 26th May raising funds for The Meningitis Trust, and along with some fantastic friends he will also be walking the Pennine Way over 12 days covering 268 miles from 26th September till 6th October, with the option of general public joining them for certain days to add to the fundraising. All funds raised are to go towards Cieran's fund, with 15% of monies raised going to The Meningitis Trust. We have family and friends taking part in other numerous fundraisers, including a sponsored slim. If you have any ideas to help us reach our yearly goal then please drop us a message through the Contact Us link.
