Cliona’s Foundation is an incredible Limerick-based charity that provides financial assistance directly to parents of children with life-limiting illnesses or chronic complex care needs across Ireland to help with the non-medical expenses related to caring for their child.  The Foundation was set up by Brendan and Terry Ring in 2007 following the death of their daughter Cliona from an inoperable brain tumour. Since its launch, Cliona’s Foundation has raised in excess of €1,000,000 and has helped more than 400 families across 28 counties.  Cliona’s Foundation relies completely on the public’s support, through donations, events and other fundraisers.   

Funds raised from these events will be used specifically for ‘hidden costs’, including accommodation, food, petrol and other miscellaneous expenses incurred by the parents of children with a life-limiting condition.
