In 2007, the Race became a fundraising event, and since then we’ve raised over 460,000 DKK for various charities. Below is an overview of how much has been raised each year, and where the money goes.
In 2019, the St. Patrick’s Day 3 Legged Charity Race continue to support 3 great charities: Danske Hospitals Klovne (Bornholm), Laura Lynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice and the Cambodian Children’s Advocacy Foundation Organisation (CCAFO).
Laura Lynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice
Since 2015, the Race has supported Laura Lynn Hospice with donations of over 55,000DKK. Laura Lynn provide palliative care and support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. They offer support for children from birth to age 18 and get referrals from anywhere in Ireland. All hospice care is free for families so they reply on donations from fundraising events like ours.
Danske Hospitals Klovne
Since 2012 the 3 Legged Charity Race has proudly supported the hospital clowns with a total donation of over 105,000 DKK. Danske Hospitalsklove help to build children’s self-esteem and give them the strength they need to deal with their unique situations. A hospital clown is a clown – not a child and not an adult, so they have a special gift that means they can help a child in a whole different way than the rest of us can.
Cambodian Children’s Advocacy Foundation Organisation
The Cambodian Children’s Advocacy Foundation Organisation (CCAFO) is a Cambodian Non-Governmental Organization, established in early 2006. CCAFO strives to combine early childhood education, varied community development programs, and economic assistance to address the root causes of rural poverty.
In 2009, Siobhán visited CCAFO’s village based preschool in Kampot Province, southern Cambodia, and established a partnership. Since then the 3 Legged Charity Race has donated over 130,000 DKK to CCAFO. Our donation helps support village based preschool and English language projects.
