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.
