Our WAR on heart disease and stroke
Highlife was 10 yrs old in September and to mark the milestone everyone in the team competed in the Wicklow Adventure Race (WAR) on September 22 in a bid to raise money for the Irish Heart Foundation. Click here for a few photos.
The Irish Heart Foundation
Heart disease is the most common cause of death in Ireland and the Irish Heart Foundation has clear goals to reduce the number through education, awareness and advocacy.
We strongly agree with the foundation's aim of prevention by promoting healthier lifestyles with regular exercise and good heart-healthy food and we are delighted to have supported its drive to raise awareness.
The Irish Heart Foundation is 90% funded by public donations and has 6 offices around the country. You will find lots more information if you follow this link.
Highlife Quiz Night
To raise as much money as we could, we hosted a quiz night on Thursday September 20 in Tonic Bar, Blackrock, Co. Dublin. We also ran a raffle with excellent prizes. Please click here to see a list of prizes and the companies who kindly donated them.
All of the expenses on the evening were paid for by Highlife so that 100% of the proceeds went directly to the Irish Heart Foundation.
Thank you to everyone who supported us in both the quiz and online donations. Both the quiz and the race day were a great success, and with your help, we raised €1772 on the night through quiz entry and raffle tickets. which along with online donations brought the total money raised to over €2,000!
