We fund educational programmes to open doors for disadvantaged children


Reaching your life potential for anyone requires effort, but for kids experiencing familial poverty, intergenerational unemployment, social isolation,  homelessness and lack of role models it's monumental. 

And it's to help these kids, experiencing such disadvantage, that I am driven to run the Boston Marathon and fundraise on behalf of basis.point.

basis.point is the charity of the Irish Funds industry.  They support children to reach their full potential through education, no matter their background.

I'm hoping to raise €20,000 to go towards a Junior Cycle programme aimed at encouraging children to continue in education.  It's run in association with TUDublin and helps demystify third level education by welcoming kids from local DEIS schools onto campus at an impressionable age, so that they can picture themselves as third level students.

I'm running at short notice, which will be tough, but the fundraising element will be even tougher. €20,000 will go a long way towards elevating the career aspirations of many hundreds of young teenagers from Dublin inner city.

I really appreciate any support you can give.  Thank you.
