Another remarkable story we have to just give credit to Steven Goggins also known as Stevo is currently raising funds for the Irish Wheelchair Associations and is now approaching his 45,000 euro target. The link to the fundraising page can be found below.
The biggest challenge of my life. I’m getting out of my wheelchair and off my crutches and going to cycle a bike 5kms for those on the front lines and for my mother who died in 2015.
Thank you to the amazing Up in the Éire

Steven, suffered a spinal injury in 2005 which left him using a wheelchair and crutches for life. Steven though has come out to do an amazing gesture. He has decided to cycle 5k on a real bicycle to raise the funds. As we all know the Irish Wheelchair Association and all of it’s frontline workers are doing incredible work at the moment and always have done in fact. Their assisted living workers are currently going to people’s homes, the most vulnerable in society to assist them with their daily activities, chores, and personal hygiene care. The community outreach team of the Irish Wheelchair Association is also providing support for those alone due to the current restrictions in place.
They are also delivering care packages to those who need them most, setting up Skype accounts to keep those in touch with family and friends, while also setting up virtual tea parties and online dancing lessons. Steven has decided to raise money to help the Irish Wheelchair Association which needs 2 million euros every year to keep such services running. Without this funding, frontline workers wouldn’t be able to help the elderly during this time. The COVID 19 pandemic has put a halt on various fundraising events for the Association. In addition, all of the charity shops the organization runs are shut.
Steven deserves massive recognition for doing this and we just hope you can all donate as much as you can to such a worthy cause.
