A number of events have been organised by our supporters and volunteers such as the Royal Blue 100k Cycle. More information will be coming soon on other events.
You can also join Team Little Blue Heroes and take part in events like the Women’s Mini Marathon and Dublin Marathon. Alternatively you can take part in local events that are organised for Little Blue Heroes in communities.
We do not receive any state funding - we rely entirely on donations and the fundraising efforts of individuals, community groups and corporate supporters. That’s why event’s and fundraising are so important to us.
Christmas 2017 Little Blue Heroes Foundation were looking to support the families of children with serious illness who must travel to hospital with their children over the festive season.
Being on the road for these families means needing fuel for the car, last minute food shopping for essentials, credit for phones and buying fuel for the home. Normally the only 24 hour service available to buy these things are garages along their route to and from hospital.
To reduce some of these costs to these families who must travel our national roads we provided Gift Cards for garages to those in need. We believe families should not have to face any added financial stress when they are already struggling to cope with the devastation and trauma of a seriously ill child.
The Gift Card is more than just a cash alternative; it’s a way to say we care, we are thinking of you this Christmas and we have your back!
Royal Blue Cycling
Our foundation receives no state funding whatsoever and relies entirely on fundraisers and events organised by members of An Garda Síochána and others in the community to support the many families who need it. Events such as the Royal Blue Cycling event in Meath ran by local Gardaí have helped us greatly to raise funds. This event will be running again on Sunday 13th May 2018 leaving Trim. Further details to follow.
Women’s Mini Marathon
The Vhi Women's Mini Marathon is the biggest all women's event of its kind in the world. Our Little Blue Heroes Ladies Team played its part and ran the Women’s Mini Marathon to raise funds for the families we support.
