Emma Blake, Kate Minihan and I are run/jog/walking the VHI virtual mini marathon on 19th September to raise money for the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire. Our beautiful friend Laraine (Lar)spent three months there in 2020 while in recovery from serious stroke. Sadly Lar passed in June 2020, three weeks before she was due to leave the centre, but we know from speaking to Lar's family and other friends just how much amazing work they were doing with her and how kind and caring the staff were during her stay there. Kate, Lar's incredible daughter is also running with us. Between us we know many other people who have been to the NRH and we are doing this to say thank you for looking after Lar and also for all the fantastic work the NRH does for people and families all over the country. Please give what you can. The photo above is of Laraine, her Dad and her husband Billy. helena Enright
