Climbing for a Cause: Raising Funds for The Alzheimer Society of Ireland

June 25, 2024

Honoring a Worthy Cause

We recently had the distinct honour of presenting our donation to the incredible team at The Alzheimer Society of Ireland (ASI). Witnessing their unwavering dedication to improving the lives of individuals affected by dementia, as well as their families and carers, was truly inspiring. The commitment and compassion they bring to their work is invaluable, and we are proud to support such a vital organization.

Our Journey: Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

In 2022, our team at Stratum embarked on a monumental challenge to raise funds for charity: we climbed Mount Kilimanjaro! This adventure was not just a test of endurance and spirit but also a testament to the power of community and the collective effort to make a difference. The cheque we presented to ASI of €3,500 is a portion of the funds raised, thanks to the generosity and support of people like you. The rest of the funds have been split between the other charities outlined on our gofundme page - such as our recent donation of €4,000 to the St James' Hospital Foundation.

All thanks to you

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who supported our fundraising efforts. Whether you donated, cheered us on, or shared our journey, your support made a significant impact. This achievement would not have been possible without your involvement, and we are deeply thankful for your contribution.

Our Commitment to Charitable Work

At Stratum, we are dedicated to ongoing charitable work. As our industry, company, and partnerships continue to grow, we aim to share that growth with those engaged in crucial and impactful work, such as The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. We are in the early stages of planning another challenge similar to our Kilimanjaro climb, and we hope you’ll stay tuned for updates on how you can get involved.
