Daybreak’s recent ‘Around the World’ challenge in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation has raised an impressive €22967.23. Daybreak employees embarked on a summer virtual active challenge and walked, ran, and cycled around the world to raise much needed funds for the Irish Heart foundation.
“We care about people in our communities across Ireland and understand and respond to their everyday needs,” said Vasco Vilas, assistant brand manager with Daybreak.
“We are proud to support the Irish Heart Foundation in its mission to save lives by eliminating premature death and avoidable disability from cardiovascular disease and ask customers to support our challenge,” he added.
Daybreak is a long-term corporate partner of the Irish Heart Foundation and is committed to supporting the thousands of individuals living with heart disease and stroke across communities in Ireland.
Every euro raised with this challenge will go directly to the Irish Heart Foundation. The funds raised will help the charity to continue to be there, educate, support and advocate for patients and their families as they are diagnosed with a new heart condition, are recovering from a stroke or heart event, or learning to live well with a condition.
“We are so thankful for Daybreak, and its employees for taking on this exciting challenge to help heart and stroke patients all across Ireland,” added Judith Gilsenan, commercial director with the Irish Heart Foundation. “Through their generosity, we will support people in local communities and put a comforting arm around the shoulder when they need it most.”
In 2020, the Irish Heart Foundation supported over 5,000 patients and this year anticipates a 25% increase in demand for its services across local communities.
