Irish rugby legend Rob Kearney has been announced as the ‘Face of Christmas Jumper Day’ for CMRF Crumlin, to raise vital funds for CHI Crumlin and the National Children’s Research Centre. The CMRF Christmas Jumper Day will launch in schools and businesses across Ireland from November, and aims to raise €50,000 for some of Ireland’s sickest children.

Rob, who is a CMRF Crumlin ambassador, is encouraging teachers and students to set up a Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser in their school; and employees to set up a Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser in their companies, in aid of CMRF Crumlin.

“Christmas Jumper Day is a great way to support sick children in Crumlin hospital.” Rob Kearney said, “Over 150,000 children go through the doors of CHI Crumlin every year. CMRF has helped families in most communities across Ireland, so I’m proud to support this campaign. Hopefully I can encourage as many children, teachers and companies as possible to raise vital funds for sick children.

"Childhood illness takes too many precious moments of laughter, play and happiness. Christmas should be a special time for them no matter where they are. I’m calling on schools and companies across Ireland to join me, and host a Christmas Jumper Day in aid of CMRF, so that they can create some magical memories for sick children this Christmas.”

CMRF Crumlin is encouraging people taking part in Christmas Jumper Day to share photos on social media and to tag @cmrf_crumlin using the hashtags #ChristmasJumperDay and #WhateverItTakes.

Christmas Jumper Day packs can be sent out to schools and companies looking to participate in the nationwide fundraiser. Interested participants can email Sinead Nolan on christmasjumperday@cmrf.org to order their packs.

Root out your brightest dress and boldest red lipstick, because this year's CMRF Gala Ball has a very special theme.

TV3's Karen Koster was all smiles yesterday as she launched the 2016 CMRF event – a Mad Hatter's Ball, taking place on March 5 at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel in Dublin.

As well as being a great (and uber-glam) night out, proceeds from ticket sales and other activities on the night will all go toward the provision of extremely valuable resources at Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.

This year the aim is to raise in excess of €175,000 for The No. 10 Fund, a fundraising initiative established by Irish rugby stars Johnny Sexton and Ronan O’Gara late last year. The main aim of the fund is to help build a new cardiac day unit at the hospital, something which is expected to cost in the region of €750,000.

As well as buying a ticket, there will be plenty of ways for attendees at the ball to show their support, including a Diamond Raffle to win a €5,000 voucher for Cullen & Co jewellers, a Silent Auction via text for some seriously luxurious prizes, a raffle at each table and a Live Auction.

Karen, who is currently pregnant with her second child, says becoming a mum has highlighted the importance of this cause to her in a huge way.

"Since becoming a mum to Finn last year, and now with another baby on the way next month, I truly appreciate the work that CMRF Crumlin do on behalf of sick children in Ireland," she explained.

Tickets for the CMRF Crumlin Mad Hatter’s Fundraiser Ball are €175 per person, and are available online, by contacting Bebhinn O'Toole on 01 7096224 or by emailing botoole@cmrf.org.

More information on the event and the great cause it supports can be found on the CMRF Crumlin website.

The annual CMRF Crumlin Fundraising Ball is getting the gold treatment this year!

This year's ball will celebrate 50 years of fundraising for Our Lady's Children's Hospital and the National Children's Research Centre, and will have a gold theme in honour of the landmark anniversary.

Irish model and CMRF Crumlin ambassador Pippa O'Connor was on hand to launch the ball, which will take place on Saturday March 14th at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Dublin. Pippa was joined by junior ambassadors Alicja and Marek Doyle for the proceedings – aren't they adorable?!

One sick child is admitted to Our Lady's Children's Hospital every four minutes, totaling 130,000 children per year. The annual CMRF Ball not only raises money for much-needed improvement in facilities and equipment, but also for the ground-breaking research that goes toward helping each and every child that passes through the hospital's doors.

CMRF Crumlin needs to raise €12 million each year to help the hospital and the National Children's Research Centre to continue in their valuable work.

Speaking at the launch, Pippa said she was delighted to be taking part. "It’s only since becoming a mum that I truly appreciate the work that CMRF Crumlin do on behalf of the children of Ireland," she said. "The Gold Ball is a celebration of the dedication and commitment of the organisation to ensuring that children have the very best paediatric care available."
