Adam Burke Fundraiser
The purpose of this is to ask for the support of your club in relation to the ‘Adam Burke’ Fundraising Campaign.
Adam is twenty one years of age. On July 20th 2016 Adam Burke suffered a devastating stroke
following an injury during a GAA football match while playing for his local club Two Mile House, Naas, Co.
Kildare. The type of stroke Adam suffered during that game could have resulted in his death but for his incredible fitness and will to survive.

The impact of this accident on the pitch a year ago has left Adam with significant life-long challenges. The stroke
caused paralysis of his right arm and hand, weakness of his right leg, increased fatigue and crucially has impacted on the area of the brain that controls speech and language. He spent six months in gruelling rehabilitation in Beaumont Hospital and the National
Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) and has made wonderful gains but still has a long way to go. It is estimated that the long term cost of Adam’s Rehabilitation will be in excess of
€1,000,000.

We are requesting donations from all the GAA Clubs in Ireland and internationally to help Adam recover from this serious
injury.

For individuals to make personal donations there is a Gofundme link athttps://www.gofundme.com/runforadamburke
and would be hugely appreciated if you could communicate this link to your Club Members.

The Fundraising Activity will comprise of a Fun Run, details on how to register at
www.runforadamburke.org
and will be followed by RTE’s Marty Morrissey hosting a celebrity GAA Panel including Davy Fitzgerald, Joe Brolly, Michael Deignan and Tomaìs Oì Seì.

Adam now more than ever really requires the wider support of the GAA Community to assist him on this road to recovery.
