galway daily life & style Galwegians challenged to take part in 100 Miles a Month

This September, the Mater Foundation is challenging people all across Galway to take part in the 100 Miles in a Month challenge to support patient care at the Mater Public Hospital

In the past two years alone, over 400 people from County Galway have raised an incredible €44,000 for the Mater Hospital.

“Our 100 Miles in a Month challenge this September is so important,” emphasised Mary Moorhead, Chief Executive of the Mater Foundation.

“The funds raised from the challenge will directly impact patients from all across Ireland as they will ensure that we always have the funds needed to upgrade and replace life-saving equipment as it is needed.”

“It is only with the support of the Irish public, that we are continuously able to transform patient care, saving even more lives and make a long and lasting difference to all who come through the hospital doors.”

“I am ever so grateful to the incredible people of County Galway who have continued to support our work at the Mater Foundation, as well as to all of those who sign up to take on this tough physical challenge.”

“On behalf of the Mater Foundation and the Mater Hospital we cannot begin to thank everyone enough for their support.”

Walk, jog, or run, participants can take the 100 Miles a Month challenge anyway they please.

Funds raised from the challenge will allow the Mater Foundation to provide life-saving equipment across the hospital, equipment like our new state of the art PETCT scanner.

This scanner enables staff to quickly diagnose and treat patients with cancer, heart disease and brain disorders.
