Watch: Stars from all walks of Irish life lend support to All-Ireland club champion who is recovering from a stroke
Brian Cody, Joe Canning, Conor Murray and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar have all lent their support to an All-Ireland club champion who is raising money for treatment as he recovers from a stroke.
Adam Burke scored 2-2 in the 2014 All-Ireland Junior club final as Two-Mile-House became the first team from Kildare to win an All-Ireland club title. Tragically, Burke suffered a stroke in July 2016 following an injury in a club match, but he is making great strides in his recovery.
The cost of Adam’s future rehabilitation including Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech & Language is estimated at €1m and a Go Fund Me page has been set up to help achieve this target, with over €40,000 raised so far.
Plenty of big names have got behind Adam, with stars from both sport and entertainment rowing in behind the fundraising effort in this great video.
A Run for Adam Burke will take place on September 30 at Two Mile House GAA club at 4pm, with 5k and 10k options available. Registration for the race is €25 and will be followed by a Barbecue, music and then from 8pm, a celebrity GAA panel hosted by Marty Morrissey and featuring Davy Fitzgerald, Joe Brolly, Michael Duignan and Tomás Ó Sé.
