Brainwave - The Irish Epilepsy Association would like to thank Colum Carter of Rhode and a group of running enthusiasts who took part in the Great Ireland Run in the Phoenix Park, Dublin in April this year, raising an amazing €3,568 in the process.

The money was raised in memory of Colum's late brother Leon, a member of Brainwave who passed away in June 2009 as a result of his epilepsy.

"Leon was about to start raising money for Brainwave, but never got a chance as he passed away suddenly", says Colum, who decided to take on the mantle in honour of Leon.

As well as Colum, the group of runners included Amanda Egan, Derek Kearney, Finbar Killally, Jason Hand, Liam Morley, David Keenan. The effort was ably supported by an extended group of fundraisers including Pat, Liam, Ray and Ian Carter, Frank Kennedy, Carmel Kelly, Tom Fawcett, Shane Rushe, Zsuzsanna Kovacs, Chris Furey, Lil Carter and Bernie Carter.

Brainwave would like to thank the Carter family and all their friends who helped to raise so much for our work in these difficult times as well as everyone in the community who supported their efforts.
