Prof. Lynch continues to run for the DNI Urgent Appeal

UPDATE: As of the end of June Prof. Lynch has successfully completed his personal target of 150 Km. He would like to thank all those who have supported him and contributed so generously to the DNI 150km Urgent Appeal. This signals the end of the Dublin Neurological Institute Front-line Run campaign but the need to maintain fundraising remains given how the COVID-19 lock-down has decimated our normal fundraising efforts. Please keep an eye out for our next fundraiser and if you feel able to donate at anytime please visit our donation page and donate online via our PayPal page.

After the inspirational success of the 150Km Frontline Run by DNI Staff in May when a target of 150km was dramatically exceeded to the value of 1260+ km by the Institute’s supporters in both Ireland and across the world, Prof. Tim lynch has committed to complete a personal total of 150km in June. This is to bolster the fund raising efforts of the DNI which have been decimated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lock-down.

Our appeal remains open and if you feel able to donate please visit our gofundme page at this link , the money raised will be used in the Dublin Neurological Institute’s day to day operations.

You can listen to Prof Lynch’s video message thanking all our supporters and outlining the role of the DNI in providing critical patient services for sufferers of a wide range of neurological conditions at this link.

Tim is receiving great support from his family who have enthusiastically joined in the campaign. The DNI’s lifespan is reflected in the aging of the Lynch family and is captured in the contrast between the two pictures below when (1) the family gathered to burn some km’s for the cause recently and (2) when they joined their father and mother at the opening of the DNI by President Mary McAleese. Time flies and we trust Tim will fly through his 150km with their support.
