A group of family and friends will be walking 480km this Thursday in celebration of a very special baby girl’s first birthday.
Baby Sarah Barrett from Portnoo was born premature on 22nd April 2020 – at the height of the Covid-19 crisis.
Her parents, Claire O’Donnell and Jason Barrett, endured an anxious three months before and after her birth, with long hospital stays and restricted visits. Through it all, their ordeal was made so much easier with the support of staff at National Maternity Hospital Foundation in Dublin and the Neonatal Unit in Letterkenny University Hospital.
Thankfully, Sarah is happy, healthy and thriving now.
To celebrate her birthday on Thursday, Sarah’s family and friends have decided to fundraise for the hospitals by walking the 480km return journey that Claire and Sarah took when they were first rushed to Dublin in February 2020. Click here to visit their GoFundMe page: https://gofund.me/727548cc
