Pulmonary Hypertension Consultants fundraiser for The Mater Hospital Foundation

Fundraising for The Mater Hospital Foundation
raised of โ‚ฌ10,000 target

Pedalling for PH, 28 September 2023
We support the Mater Hospital to ensure patients receive excellent care


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On Thursday 28th September, consultants from specialist PH centres across Ireland and the UK will cycle from Sheffield to Dublin to show support for patients and raise money for PHA Ireland and PHA UK. The Irish contingent will be our own Prof. Sean Gaine and Dr. Brian McCullagh of the National Pulmonary Hypertension Unit, Mater Hospital.

This epic cycle will take three days and cover around 250 miles. The group will depart from the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, catch a ferry from Liverpool to Belfast, and then ride down to the Mater Hospital in Dublin.

Recognising that the journey with PH can be very hard for patients and their families and requires great endurance and fortitude, they want to show their support by travelling their own challenging journey and raise essential funds for PH patient care and support.

Please donate to support our intrepid cyclists in aid of PHA Ireland on this dedicated JustGiving page. All fundraising will be transferred to the Mater Hospital Foundation for use in supporting pulmonary hypertension patients, their carers and activities focused on improving PH awareness to achieve earlier diagnosis and better outcomes for sufferers.

The full Irish & UK team taking to the saddle are:
