FAI supports unique charity event
Milo sadly passed away last August aged 65 after a short battle with Cancer following his diagnosis shortly after travelling around France to support the Boys in Green during last summer’s UEFA EURO 2016 campaign.
Unfortunately Milo also suffered a Stroke in 2011 but due to his determination he was able to regain his independence and resume his roles within the FAI. Following this, Alan ran 35 marathons in 35 consecutive days raising €15,000 for the Irish Heart Foundation’s Stroke awareness campaign, the Football Village of Hope, a peace building football charity Milo was instrumental in establishing and also the NRH.
Keen to assist the Irish Heart Foundation’s Stroke campaign and support the Solas Cancer Support Centre which his family used, Alan will begin swimming on the 13th May, swimming up to 6 hours a day in the Irish Sea until he reaches his home town of Waterford.
Please keep an eye out and donate what you can to the Irish Heart Foundation bucket collectors at the upcoming Wales game 24th March.
