Noah’s Bed Push from Dublin to Letterkenny is currently in Omagh and well on it’s way to reaching the €100,000 mark!
An army of brave volunteers left the capital on Thursday and are expected to arrive in Donegal tomorrow.
The push, which has already raised an impressive €71,000, is in honour of Noah Gooch (6) who was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.
As he continues to battle his illness, his family organised the giant fundraising effort and have managed to convince a host of well-known names from the north west to take part.
The 250- kilometre-long journey, from Crumlin Children’s Hospital to Letterkenny University Hospital, is in aid of nine beneficiaries that help families with children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.
Noah, who also has Down’s Syndrome, has been receiving care at both hospitals since being diagnosed back in January when he was just five.
His family want to give something back and to say ‘thank you’ for the life-saving medical care he has been receiving since his devastating diagnosis.
Noah’s father, Lee Gooch, is a popular presenter on Highland Radio.
He said the bed push will be an opportunity to raise awareness and vital funds for the hospitals and beneficiaries that give life-saving medical treatments to children and offer support and guidance to families at a time when their worlds are turned upside down and they need expert help in navigating the challenges ahead.
Noah’s parents, Lee and Claire and his brother Lee junior, have
been overwhelmed by the love and support they have received from so many people.
