Graham Burns (father of Ben Burns) initiative to show some heart for the Irish Heart Foundation.
As a proud member of ULBohemian RFC, a former member of Old Wesley, and a supporter of the wider rugby community, I’m asking that the rugby community come together and show some heart for the Irish Heart Foundation. With the support of the IRFU, Energia, sponsors of the AIL, and the Clubscene podcast, we want as many rugby supporters as possible to get involved in raising awareness and much-needed funds for the Irish Heart Foundation. To get involved and donate go here: https://eventmaster.ie/fundraising/campaign/Rugby%20Shows%20Some%20Heart
About the Irish Heart Foundation:
The Irish Heart Foundation, founded in 1966, runs support groups for patients who have had heart problems or strokes and campaigns on public health issues. Education is a major part of the Irish Heart Foundation’s work, delivering training programs free to schools on the delivery of CPR. The Irish Heart Foundation relies on the goodwill and generosity of our supporters to fund lifesaving and life-changing work in prevention, research, CPR, advocacy, and patient support.
Graham Burns played on the Old Wesley Under 19 team that reached the McCorry Cup Final in 1982-83. He also played for a number of years as a strong 3rds player. One of his sons, Ben, plays for Old Wesley and another son, Sam, plays for Highfield.
