Hi there, My name is Helen McDermott and I am a 4th year student at MTU studying Nutrition and Health science. I am delighted to be taking part in the 100 Minds campaign this year and hope to raise 1000€ or more in 100 days.
100 Minds is a unique and exciting student fundraiser that brings together third-level students with young professional mentors to achieve something really special for sick children in CHI hospitals and urgent care centres by raising vital funds for Children’s Health Foundation.
This year the funds raised by the 100minds will help fund the only advanced and state-of-art simulation centre in paediatrics in Ireland.
By providing this innovative training facility, our doctors and healthcare professionals can learn how to deal with a multitude of disease, from viral infections to metabolic conditions without endangering the lives of sick children. Learning in a life-like simulation will provide invaluable experience that could make the difference in an emergency.
Thank you for the taking time to read my profile. If you can donate and help me reach my goal of €1000 or more in 100 days, I would greatly appreciate it. No donation is too small!
