All proceeds donated to Croí will go towards our ‘Women at Heart’ campaign – an awareness campaign which targets women of all ages and highlights the fact that heart disease is not just a man’s disease. Women are six times more likely to die from heart disease and stroke than from breast cancer yet almost 90% of women are not aware of this fact. ‘Women at Heart’ aims to increase awareness of the risks, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart disease in women.

6th Annual Eugene McLoughlin Memorial Run

11th August 2019 6:00 am - 11:00 pm Charlestown, Co. Mayo

Date: Sunday, August 11th 2019

Time: 1pm

Location: Charlestown, Co. Mayo

Registration takes place on the day 

To date, this community event has raised over €30k in aid of Croí. This continued support is vital for our ongoing fight against heart disease and stroke. This is an incredible achievement and a testament to the dedication and hard work of the Mcloughlin family and friends of Charlestown and surrounding areas.

The committee of the Charlestown tractor run purchased a defibrillator for the community from the funds raised in 2017. This defibrillator, along with the heroic efforts of the local fire brigade, saved the life of a young father of four in 2018.

Part of the funds raised each year is now going towards providing CPR training for members of the public, to ensure that more lives are not lost in the battle against heart disease and stroke in the Charlestown area.

It’s a great honour for Croí to be a part of this amazing event celebrating the life of husband and father Eugene McLoughlin, who passed away suddenly in 2013.

This amazing support makes a huge difference and helps Croí to support patients and families, particularly through our Courtyard Apartment fund for those receiving critical heart or stroke care at Galway University Hospital.

The Big Gig, Cairde Seán Henry

Come along for a night celebrating friendship and life, with Ireland’s greatest traditional musicians and singers.

Date: Sunday, October 6th

Time: 4pm

Location: Clayton Hotel, Galway

Tickets: €25 pp, available here.

This event has been organised in memory of Portumna publican, Seán Henry, and will feature performances from some of Ireland’s greatest traditional musicians such as: Frankie Gavin, Joanie Madden and Cherish the Ladies, Seán Keane, Matt Keane, Mary Bergin, Jimmy Crowley, Eileen O’Brien, Anne Conroy, Seán Gavin, John Faulkner, and many more. The event will also be relaunching a CD originally released by Seán in 2002 which includes some of Ireland’s finest performers, all friends of Seán.

Traditional music was a huge part of Seán’s life and this concert is a continuation of his unrelenting support of the West. Sadly, Seán was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1998. He survived the cancer and non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma during the following 18 years, but the treatment damaged his heart, leading to heart failure. Seán passed away five days after open heart surgery in Galway in November 2017.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Croí Heart and Stroke Charity and Cancer Care West, raising much needed funds to lead the fight against heart disease and cancer in the West of Ireland.

Croí is honoured to be a part of this event. Please come along to show your support.

VHI Women’s Mini Marathon

2nd June 2019 9:00 am - 4:04 pm Dublin

Run the Mini Marathon in support of Croi 

The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon, an annual 10k charity road race, occurs each June bank holiday weekend in Dublin and is the largest Women’s event of its kind in the world.

In 1983, the inaugural event had 9,000 women entering and the event reached a record attendance in 2014 with 41,006 women taking part. The event has grown in popularity as women have taken more interest in their own health and fitness. A staggering 1 million women have entered the event over its 36 years.

Hundreds of charities are also big winners. The women decide themselves which charity they will support and many local causes gain vital funds from the event. It is now the largest one day charity event in the country.
