Rob Kearney Face Crazy Hair Day

Irish rugby legend and CMRF Crumlin ambassador Rob Kearney has been announced as the ‘Face of Crazy Hair Day’ for CMRF Crumlin. CMRF raises vital funds for CHI Crumlin and the National Children’s Research Centre. Crazy Hair Day launched in primary schools across Ireland from the 24thApril, and aims to raise €30,000 for some of Ireland’s sickest children. Rob, who has been a CMRF Crumlin ambassador for over 5 years, is encouraging teachers and students to set up a Crazy Hair Day fundraiser in their school in aid of CMRF Crumlin.


CMRF Crumlin is encouraging teachers, students and parents to arrange Crazy Hair Days in their schools, to share photos on social media, to tag @cmrf_crumlin and use the hashtags #CrazyHairDay and #WhateverItTakes. 1 in 100 children in Ireland are born with a structural heart defect. On average, 211 children every year will be diagnosed with cancer – all of them are treated at CHI Crumlin. Crazy Hair Day packs will be landing in schools soon.


If you want to make sure your school is involved in this fun nationwide fundraiser you can email Sinead Nolan on to order your pack.
