The Foundation could not have reached its ten year milestone without the consistent support and assistance of the following longstanding partners:

Our Patron, Sonia O’Sullivan

Sonia, from Cobh in County Cork and now living in Melbourne, Austrialia, is one of Ireland’s greatest achieving athletes. She was one of the world’s leading female 5000m runners for most of the 1990s and early 2000’s. Her crowning achievement was a gold medal in the 5000m at the 1995 World Athletics Championships and she won silver medals in the 5000m at the 2000 Olympic Games and in the 1500m at the 1993 World Championships. She also won three European Championship gold medals and two World Cross-Country Championship gold medals. In 2012, Sonia was Team Ireland’s Chef de Mission at the London Olympics.
