MONDELLO PARK RUN-JOG-WALK
14thJULY 2022 7 PM
MONDELLO PARK RUN-JOG-WALK, organised by Kathleen Smith and her family, to raise funds for Eoghan Gorman, a family friend.
On 3rdOctober 2021 Eoghan’s life was to change forever. Only 23 years of age and a lover of all things sport, having travelled Europe since a young age representing Ireland in Taekwondo and Martial Arts.
While mountain biking in the Dublin mountains, he came off his bike coming down a trail he had a terrible accident fracturing his spine. Eoghan was put in an induced coma and on a life support machine and underwent emergency spinal surgery.
After a determined fight and now able to breath unassisted, Eoghan is paralysed from the shoulders down and has no control of his upper or lower body. He now continues his treatment in the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH), Dun Laoghaire.
Eoghan is on one of life’s toughest journeys and in the coming months he will come home.When he does, he will need around the clock care, specialised equipment and his home will have to be modified to cater for his many medical needs costing hundreds of thousands of euros.
Although this is a difficult time, Eoghan keeps fighting and we need to help him in his fight.Walk, Run or Jog with us in Mondello Park on Monday 14thJuly at 7 pm.
