RCSI RAG Week - SU raise money for MS Ireland

27 February 2014

RCSI Students were out in force all week raising money for Multiple Sclerosis Ireland, the chosen charity of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland Students' Union. The aim of this year’s RAG week (17th – 21st February) was to raise awareness of MS and much-needed funds for local MS support services.

SU - Rag Week @ RCSI

This year’s RAG week kicked off with Madison Nightclub hosting an RCSI Club Night. RCSI Students Union hosted MS Irelands, Dublin & Kildare Regional Coordinator, Rosanna Dukes in the Albert Lecture Theatre on Tuesday evening. Rosanna was joined by a patient who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis spoke about how MS Ireland supports her and her family. Wednesday was Collection Day; RCSI students took to Grafton Street in fancy dress, shaking collection buckets for MS Ireland. Collection Day was rewarded by a mystery tour that evening. Acoustic Night, the extremely talented RCSI students displayed their musical abilities for charity on Thursday Night. The highlight of the week was “Take Me Out!” – RCSI recreated the well-known TV show in the O’Flanagan Lecture Theatre. The night was filled with music, laughter and good spirits. 

On 1 March - RCSI students will be getting down and dirty in the Run-A-Muck Challenge. 68 of our brave students will race through the muck bearing all the elements that Irish weather has to throw at them in aid of MS Ireland.

The total raised is yet to be announced. We would like to htank and congratulate all who donated their time and/or effort to this worthy cause.
