Walk for IMNDA and Offaly Homelessness - IMNDA

Walk for IMNDA and Offaly Homelessness

September 14th, 2021

You can read the widely acclaimed interview with Paddy by award-wining sportswriter Vincent Hogan  which appeared in the Irish Independent on January 11 here: https://www.independent.ie/sport/gaelic-games/gaelic-football/ive-accepted-it-like-why-not-me-why-should-it-be-somebody-else-offaly-legend-opens-up-on-life-changing-illness-38852475.html
The walk has been inspired by the late Fr Tony Coote’s hugely successful ‘Walk While You Can’ initiative. Fr Coote, who was the parish priest in Mount Merrion, Dublin and an MND sufferer, died in 2019 having raised in excess of €600,000 for MND causes.

Paddy wished to share these words:

“The service that the IMNDA provide is funded completely by public donations and this initiative is an effort on my behalf and that of my team to help provide a greater range of support to approximately 400 people who suffer from the disease in Ireland.

“It is my hope that the monies raised across all our fundraising efforts can help offset the impact of motor neurone disease, while hastening the search for a cure, as well lessening the impact the current homeless crisis has in this country.”
