MED WEEK 2021
FEB 15th - 19th
The Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust is an amazing organisation that is dedicated to supporting Irish people with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma who need stem cell transplants.
The trust provides apartments where patients can comfortably stay post-operatively, supports the running of the haematology department in St James’s Hospital (the only location in Ireland where adults can receive a sibling or matched unrelated stem cell transplant), and funds labs which undertake cutting edge clinical research and drug development.
UCD Med Week is our annual charity fundraising event. It normally involves a number of specific fundraising events, all culminating with Med Day which sees members of the Society hit the streets of Dublin, shaking buckets to collect donations for the chosen charity.
Med Week brings students from every level within the school together and gives us a chance to give back to our community by donating our time and efforts to raise funds for charity.
Although this year things are a little different we're setting our sights high with a hope to raise just as much as we would in a 'normal' year! But for that we need your help!
What's Different This Year?
There will be no bucket collecting this year, instead we want you to join together in an online Just Giving Campaign. We'll be setting ourselves challenges and looking for donations in return!
As a thank you and in place of the much loved breakfast roll and drinks tokens, everyone who signs up to the campaign will be entered into a raffle to win some fantastic prizes!
We'll also have lots of our usual mini fundraising events throughout the week, so keep watch for updates!

How Does the Raffle Work?
As a thank you to all our fundraisers, we've organised a raffle to spur you on to raise as much as you can. Once you set up your Just Giving account and reach a minimum €25 per person associated with the account you will be automatically entered into the base raffle.
Be aware that the raffle will be tiered, so the more you raise, the better your potential prize!
More details on this will follow!
What are the Challenges?
Anything you like!
We're leaving this one up to you. Everything is on the table from daily sea swims, running a marathon, DIY Haircut, creating a piece of art, busking, organise an online fitness class, dye your hair, waxing your chest, getting a tattoo to walking Howth head in your Med Ball dress! You decide!
If you want to do it in a team that's okay too, just make sure all team members sign up on the form on this website, indicate that you're part of a team and then create just one GoFundMe account
