Anita Lilly, from Ballyshannon in Donegal, was not very familiar with Croí when she first completed our Night Run virtually last year, however, Anita and Croí’s paths crossed months later when Anita’s father suffered a heart attack and needed to spend 10 days in coronary care. Anita stayed in our Courtyard Apartments, free accommodation for the families of loved-ones receiving heart or stroke care in Galway, so she could stay in Galway and be close to her father while he received care.
Anita says, “I was just amazed by this service and the work Croí do. The accommodation was so lovely and the staff were so caring.” Anita is all set to take part in the Night Run again this year on Friday, October 8th, and “every year going forward!”
Anita will be doing the Night Run again this year, and every year going forward, as Croí is now extremely significant to her and her family. She encourages others to take part in the Croí Night Run, on Friday, October 8th, to raise money for the work that Croí do. “It’s so important. They deserve every penny for the unbelievable work that Croí do”.
