I (Aoife) will be participating in a 24 hour running event in 2023 to raise funds for my friend Darren O'Connor who is in Beaumont hospital for the past year with life changing complications with Covid. All funds raised will go into a larger fund being raised for Darren's medical needs.

https://www.rte.ie/player/series/prime-time/SI0000...

Just over a year ago Darren walked into A& E in Beaumont hospital, apparently suffering from Covid complications, despite being fully vaccinated and adhering to all the guidelines. Darren is suffering from Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome which is a rare post Covid disease with a high mortality rate in adults. Within 48 hours he was in a coma, and he hasn’t left Beaumont hospital since. Darren requires round the clock care. He can currently move his eyes and tilt his head slightly. Otherwise, he can do absolutely nothing for himself.

Darren is receiving great care for this most rare of conditions. He is currently awaiting a bed in the National Rehabilitation Hospital. Darren’s wife Sam, who has provided amazing support to him through the last year will be training in order to be in a position to care for Darren at home. To get him there, Darren's family need to purchase the necessary aids and appliances to enable them to give him the care he will need.

24 hr run Postponed due to Covid

Update posted by Aoife Catherine O Donnell at 11:48 am

Hi all. I very regrettably have to postpone the 24hr run as I have contracted Covid. This means I will be signing up for another 24 hour event or 100 mile race shortly instead. This means more time to fundraise which is the bright side of it all. Thank you

  • I worked with Daren, I'm sorry for everything he went through. He was the best manager, intelligent, honest, and with a great character. I hope he gets well very soon
