Adam Burke crossing the line at Two Mile House today
There were incredible scenes at Two Mile House GAA this afternoon as young stroke survivor Adam Burke led his team-mates over the finish line of a fundraising run to raise money for his treatments.
Adam, then just 20, suffered a devastating stroke during a local GAA match on July 20 of last year.
The doctors told family that there was a 20% chance of Adam surviving, and if he did there was a slim chance he’d walk, talk or recognise them again.
He has made phenomenal progress over the last year - but speech and physical therapies could cost up to €1 million.
The GAA and his local community turned out in force today for a fundraising 5k/10k run to raise money.
Maureen Catterson captured the incredible scenes as Adam led his team-mates over the finish line.
