Thanks to everyone who supported The Ciara Lawlor Memorial this year in aid of Ataxia Foundation Ireland. Run with Ciara and The Memorial Walk raised €6,080.

Again, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of people, not only with their donations but with their time.

Less than two years ago, our family started an emotional journey no parent, or sibling should ever have to make. In the last two years, we have had to cross many hurdles. The support from family and friends who have remained a constant in our lives has helped us struggle with the waves of grief that we battle every day.

Though difficult as it is to write we are honoured our daughter’s memory can live on by helping others. We hope to continue to be able to do something beneficial, and that her short life has left a small mark to help others.
