Every Thursday evening the Therapist along with some parents bring children swimming to the Auburn Lodge in Ennis. The children really enjoy this swimming as its a break from work. The therapist use the Halliwick swimming method which means that no floating devices are used in the water. The Halliwick concept was developed to teach people to swim and become independent in water with an emphasis on happiness and safety

The Pakie Ryan Run has raised over €100,000 for various charities over the past 3 year with Clare Crusaders receiving over €30,000 in this period.

In the annual Co-operation Ireland All-Island Pride of Place Awards announced at the gala ceremony in Gorey, County Wexford on Saturday (5 November 2011). The Clare Crusaders won a Special Award , the judges said that the organisation provided excellent and comprehensive range of services on a timely basis, which are provided free of charge to hard pressed parents of children with special needs. The judges were just in awe of what is being achieved here on a modest annual budget. To maintain existing services and therapies the group relies solely on fundraising and personal donations.
