Today, CMRF were approached by The Ashville Media Group to nominate our fabulous Superhero’s Adelina Corigliano and Donal Walsh for their ‘Child Hero of The Year Award’ as part of their annual Maternity Infant Awards.
Ashville Media are the award-winning publishers of both Maternity and Maternity & Infant magazines and this is the third year they will be holding this event.
CMRF are delighted to nominate both Adelina Corigliano and Donal Walsh for their immense support, inspiration and ongoing dedication to fundraising for CMRF through the 'Super Hero Fun Run, 2010' campaign. Both Adelina and Donal are patients of St. John’s Ward and they are tireless in their support of CMRF and Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital. They have been immensely supportive from the onset of this project and they are genuine super hero’s to all of us here at CMRF.
The Super Hero Fun Run in Phoenix Park was held on 22 May and it has raised a staggering 85K to date. Following on from this, CMRF are holding an additional Super Hero Fun Run in Fota Wildlife Park, 18 September, 2010. Adelina, Donal and their families have been immensely generous with their personal stories, their time and enthusiasm for this event - we are truly grateful and we are enormously proud of them.
CMRF are currently nominating Adelina and Donal for the ‘Child Hero of The Year Award’. We will be in touch shortly to update you on how they get on. Regardless of the outcome, Adelina and Donal are true Superhero’s to all of us.
