    Posted: 07 Dec 2012 at 10:19pm
Right folks, I'm delighted to announce that Aoibheann's Pink Tie and Shine are YBIG's chosen charities for 2013.  Both do fantastic work and we are looking forward to help them raise funds throughout the coming year. ClapClapClapClap


Aoibheann's Pink Tie


 
History of APT:
We are trying to build an organisation to support the families of children suffering the horror of childhood cancer, Aoibheann's Pink Tie is dedicated to the memory of our precious daughter and sister Aoibheann Norman. In all the events we held for Aoibheann during her brave battle against cancer we asked everyone to wear pink Ties to show their support for her, even when we had to say goodbye (Till we meet again).  Aoibheann's Pink Tie is a great way to remember our Darling Aoibheann, the pink for girls the tie representing boys, thanks for all the support please help us spread the word.
 
Mission of APT:
APT's primary focus is on helping the families of the children.  That means, whatever will lift some of the burden of everyday life, we will do.  This will allow them the ability to focus on their child and working through their illness.  Families are often lost in the mix a lot of times when children go through this battle, but its not just the child that gets cancer, its the whole family as each is affected and must struggle.  This could mean anything from rewiring a house to a fundraising event that will send the family on a holiday.  In the past we have done the little things like negotiated with mobile phone companies for free credit, to move a family to a donated house just so the child had an healthly warm environment to spend their last days.  We can also just be somebody to turn to.  Jimmy Norman, Aoibheann's father, is our primary spokesperson as he can speak directly to the families having lived through it himself.
 
All the families that we get involved in are referred through Jimmy (Aoibheann's Dad).  Either through the hospitals or through word of mouth from other families that APT has helped.
 
Our goal is to expand and grow APT into an official charity and a leading voice of support while people are going through their darkest hours.

Please Note: At this time, APT is not an officially recognised charity in Ireland.  We do however give 100% of everything we raise to the particular family we are helping at the time.

I'm running on St. Patricks Day in support of Aoibheann's Pink Tie.

Anyone who has ever been touched by Childhood Cancer knows that the battle involves the entire family. I can still remember the day that I got the news that one of my best friend's daughter Aoibheann was sick. Devastation is not nearly strong enough to describe it. Throughout her battle, she became more than just my friend, she became my Hero.

From her inspiration, Aoibheann's Pink Tie was born in her memory. 100% of the money raised goes towards supporting and providing practical help to any family while their child is fighting the battle to beat Cancer. In the past couple years APT has been growing leaps and bounds based on the brilliant work that they do. 2012 saw APT's affiliation with the Irish Cancer Society and Olympian Gold Medalist Katie Taylor agreeing to be APT's Ambassador.

This will be my first race since tearing my achilles tendon. Please support me in my fundraising for this wonderful charity. Go raibh mile maith agat. (Please share)
