The staff of Bank of Ireland Donegal Town have launched a new fundraising challenge to raise money for special baby girl Olivia ‘Livie’ Mulhern.
The ‘Better Life for Livie‘ campaign aims to raise over $2million for potentially life-saving treatment for 10-month-old Livie, who is suffering from Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Livie is the cherished daughter of Donegal Town man Keith Mulhern and his fiance Karen Vickers from Dublin.
In recent months, the community of Donegal has rallied around Livie’s family to help raise the vital funds as soon as possible.
Bank of Ireland Donegal Town staff will join the effort next month with a 389km walking/cycling challenge. The route will take in each of the 13 towns in Donegal that Bank of Ireland has a branch in.
Staff will hit the road in August and track all progress via GPS to ensure accuracy.
Branch manager Shane Browne will take on the final hurdle by completing the round trip from Donegal Town – Bundoran – Donegal Town (60 Kms)
The staff team are hoping to generate a lot of ‘interest‘ from this large scale challenge and gather even more funds for little Livie.
