UCD Med Day on 17 October to raise money for Helium

We are delighted that Helium is one of the chosen charities for this year’s UCD Med Day, MedSoc’s annual charity fundraising day. Taking place on Friday, 17 October, over 600 UCD Medical students will take to the streets of Dublin in order to raise as much money as possible for these eight Irish charities: CF Ireland, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), The Irish Hospice Foundation, Helium, Laura Lynn Foundation, Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust, The Mater Foundation and St. Vincent’s foundation.

Over the past number of years, UCD Medical Society and its members have raised a considerable amount for Irish charities, with just over €23,000 being raised last year. They are hoping to build on last year’s figure so please lend your support to make Med Day 2014 one of the most successful yet. Collectors will be wearing brightly coloured blue and white t-shirts.
