Sports legend and Children’s Health Foundation ambassador Jamie Heaslip has helped launch a brand-new team-building challenge ‘Clash of the Companies’, taking place on 8 July in the RDS.
Following on from the popular ‘Techies4TempleStreet’ treasure hunt, ‘Clash of the Companies’ is the Children’s Health Foundation’s first team-building event that will raise funds for sick children across CHI at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly and welcomes teams from all sectors of the business community. Since Techies4TempleStreet was first held in 2015, the event has raised over €1 million and helped transform the lives of thousands of sick children.
Teams will gather in the RDS on Friday, 8 July where they will face the Clash challenge and compete to be named Clash Champions 2022. All teams will compete against each other with a captivating challenge along the streets of Dublin incorporating physical, mind bending and digital challenges. Children’s Health Foundation is inviting teams of eight people to sign up from companies across Ireland. So, whether you are based in IT or tech, banking or insurance, administration or creative, join the fun and help change the lives of seriously ill children.
“I am delighted to be here to help launch this innovative fundraising challenge,” Jamie Heaslip said. “I have been involved since the inaugural Techies4TempleStreet event in 2015 and have watched it flourish and grow over the years. It is wonderful to see the next phase of this exciting event – Clash of the Companies – which will raise funds to support sick children right across Children’s Health Ireland’s hospitals and urgent care centres.”
Every year, sick children and their worried families from all over Ireland come to CHI (Children’s Health Ireland) at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly, in need of the expert care that only CHI’s world-class teams can provide. Children’s Health Foundation is committed to supporting those children on their journeys in the hospitals and urgent care centres.
Funds raised by the Clash of the Companies challenge will support the vital and life-saving work that happens in CHI at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly every single day, from cutting-edge equipment and a range of patient and parental supports, to making ground-breaking paediatric research possible.
