The 2019 Cycle for Crumlin will take place on Saturday 20th July. Now in its 6th year, this charity cycle event hosted by Murphy Surveys in conjunction with the Kilcullen Cycling Club has become a firm favourite in the cycling calendar to raise money for the amazing work of the CMRF Crumlin (the Children’s Medical and Research Foundation).  The event will feature 2 courses, a 50km and 100km cycle routes that will start and finish in Kilcullen. The course has been designed for all fitness levels, so whether you’re a keen amateur cyclist or cycling for fun, this is an event not to be missed! 

 

We’ve raised in excess of €65,000 for CMRF Crumlin to date and with your help we’re aiming to smash previous targets to raise in excess of €20,000 this year. CMRF Crumlin is the fundraising body for CHI Crumlin, and the National Children’s Research Centre, and is dedicated to helping sick children. Through their patient-centred approach and cutting-edge research they have helped improve the quality of life of thousands of children and help give hope to thousands more. On average 150,000 children walk through the doors of Crumlin hospital every year. This year’s event is extra special as it coincides with the Kilcullen 700, and will support the celebrations marking 700 years since the first bridge in Kilcullen across the Liffey!

 About CMRF Crumlin

 

CMRF Crumlin is the fundraising body for CHI Crumlin, and the National Children’s Research Centre, and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for this and future generations of sick children.  At their core CMRF Crumlin is patient-centred child health and supporting families dealing with life changing challenges. 

 

Research goes hand in hand with child health and break through projects are changing the way they deliver care to some of the sickest children in the country.  For many seriously ill children, early diagnosis and the right treatment at the right time is crucial. That is why they invest in research, as it is knowledge and insights that gives answers, improvements and breakthroughs.

 

One of our main focuses is on transitional research – getting results from bench to bedside to deliver personalised medicine, individual treatment plans based on the child’s individual case, genes and responses. Crumlin want to discover more precise and faster diagnoses for children, targeted interventions and cures ultimately saving more children’s lives and improving long-term outcomes for each sick child.  

 

Thanks to research, today Alex, a Cystic Fibrosis patient has an average life expectancy of 45 years. Just 10 years ago a child with CF’s life expectancy was just 25.

 

CMRF Crumlin will continue to invest in research and ensure that every patient that passes through the doors of CHI Crumlin, Crumlin receives the best treatments and supports possible in an environment that supports recovery and well-being.  www.cmrf.org
