Techies 4 Temple Street, Dublin
ChannelSight is excited to announce their third annual participation as Gold Sponsors at Techies 4 Temple Street. This event will take place in Dublin on the 5th of July 2019. It will be a demonstration of teamwork and a battle of wits to find Ireland’s ‘Smartest Techie’. Teams of professionals from Ireland’s tech and business communities will take over the streets of Dublin. This unique challenge will make an impact on the lives of sick children across Ireland. Supporting Temple Street Hospital is something that is close to our hearts at ChannelSight. As a result, we are delighted to be some of the 1,600 techies participating in the event this year.
Techies 4 Temple Street Changing Lives
Temple Street is Ireland’s leading National Children’s Hospital. It provides life changing care to over 148,000 patients each year from across the country. Children and their families rely on Temple Street to be there for them when they need it most. Supporting Temple Street Children’s University Hospital helps to create an environment where sick kids can just be kids. Moreover, the funding raised from Techies 4 Temple Street will be used to finance research, redevelop hospital facilities and purchase life saving equipment.
A safe environment filled with people who care is exactly what many sick kids and their families need. Grainne, a mother who has experienced first hand how literally life saving Temple Street is, said “Temple Street to me is my comfort blanket. If there is anything going on, or if there’s something I’m worried about, it doesn’t matter what it is. I can lift the phone and ring somebody. It’s like it is like a second home.” Support from the community is what makes this possible. Similarly, Alan, another parent to a child at Temple Street, shared “Medical care is part of it, but what makes Temple Street stand out is the love they give you. It’s the emotional support. It’s the human touch that makes it so special.”
The ChannelSight team will be participating alongside many other Irish start ups and major tech companies. If you see us, come say hi!
