Miles 4 Rian

"Miles 4 Rian" is a charity event aiming to raise essential funds for St. Clement’s College student, Rian O’Halloran.

Rian, an avid sportsman with St. Mary's RFC and Shelbourne AFC, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, in April. Unfortunately, Rian lost his leg to the cancer and is now undergoing treatment in Crumlin Children’s Hospital as the cancer has spread. The O’Halloran Family are in the process of planning the remodelling of their home. We, with your help, want to make this easier for them.

"Miles 4 Rian" will involve one of Rian’s teachers running one mile each hour for 24 hours. We are hoping that a well-known personality (family, friends, teachers and maybe even some local celebs) will join Mr. Tidswell for each one of these 24 miles. Each “Mile with Meaning” will also be supported by a corporate sponsor. The event will be live-streamed with the sponsors being mentioned throughout the campaign.

How can you help? 

1. Can you/your company provide corporate sponsorship for one of the miles? If so please contact, [email redacted] 

2. Can you provide a donation? Every little helps. 

3. Could you put us in contact with a local/national personality who would be willing to take part in "Miles with Meaning" either virtually or in-person (COVID regulations dependent)? If so please contact, [email redacted] 

Thanks so much to everyone who has donated to Miles 4 Rian so far. We have almost reached our initial target of €24,000 euro which will part-fund the remodelling costs. Due to the phenomenal response we are now aiming to cover the full cost of €50,000. Thank you all, so much, for your outstanding generosity and support.
