This event is the blueprint for nationwide the Up the Hill for Jack & Jill campaign which takes place every year during October-November!

“The O’Sullivan Family event is a great formula of fundraising with the emphasis on fun, friends and family and I’m very proud to say that this annual event has become our blueprint for ‘Up the Hill for Jack & Jill’ our nationwide campaign. This, we hope, will become Jack & Jill’s own version of Daffodil Day and we are forever indebted to John and his team for their energy and loyalty towards Jack & Jill. The best thing about this particular story is young Sean himself and the fact that he is doing so well and will be there cheering people on at the finish line. That is worth more than all the fundraising in the world.”Jonathan Irwin, CEO Jack & Jill
