I am Triona, a 3rd level student from DCU studying Marketing, Innovation and Technology. I am from Malahide, which is a coastal town in North Dublin.
This year I’m proud to say I have been accepted into the 100minds program where 3rd level students raise much needed funds for Temple Street Children’s Hospital. 100minds was founded in 2013 and over the last 7 years students have raised €1,300,000 for children’s charities in Ireland.
This year, the money raised will be going towards building a brand new Isolation Unit in the Haemodialysis Ward of Temple Street Children's Hospital.
The goal is for each student to raise €1000 in 100 days in their own innovative and effective way.

On Your Feet For Temple Street!
Posted: 4 months ago
My 100minds project this year is called ‘On Your Feet for Temple Street’, where myself and my fellow participant Deirbhile Gorman have teamed together to get people up and moving this winter. After one week we have reached our halfway mark of €1,000!
We are challenging individuals to get on their feet and climb the height of the Eiffel Tower, which is the equivalent of climbing up and down a flight of stairs 53 times. For every €10 donation, individuals get entered into a draw to win flights to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower in person.
With the great success of our first week, we have decided to also launch our very own version of the 12 Days of Christmas. Each day we will be sharing informative posts about CHI Temple Street and all of the amazing work that happens there. We will also be suggesting a form of exercise to get people on their feet each day, such as going on a walk, or even dancing in their kitchen.
I am so excited to see the next step of this fundraiser unfold! I want to thank everyone who has donated so far, I am amazed with everyone’s generosity this Christmas!
The On your Feet For Temple Street Campaign has come to an end, and myself and Deirbhile have raised an amazing €3,000 for CHI Temple Street. I can’t believe the enthusiasm and generosity I have seen throughout this campaign.
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and participated in the campaign!
