Cycle4Life is a volunteer led fundraising effort in support of Temple Street Hospital.
It is with great regret we have chosen to postpone this years event.
This is due to operational difficulties, something we are endeavouring to address. We would sincerely like to thank all those that have supported us in the past. With your tremendous support we've raised over €520K in aid of Temple Street.
Here it is folks, Official highlights video of the 2016 Cycle4life event from our friends at ICN Sports Media.
Packed with stories and interviews from participants, parents, kids and the doctors at Temple Street Children's Hospital Foundation and of course, our ambassador Sean Kelly. Our special thanks to the guys at Dunboyne Cycling Club for putting on such a great event!
During our 2106 Cycle4Life event Louise O'Reilly spends a little time with Ciara Mealy from Temple Street Foundation to talk about our partnership and some of the special projects we've been involved in over the last number of years. Ciara perfectly captures what we're all about.
In 2014 we helped fund the much needed renovation of Top Flat ward. Cycle4Life was founded to help make a difference to patient care at Temple Street.

Cycle4life is a volunteer led initiative set up in support the fundraising effort at Our Children's University Hospital Temple Street. With your help, we support special projects across various departments using funds donated by our supporters to deliver essential equipment impacting patient care. To date we have raised over €520,000 for Temple Street Children`s Hospital. Our first event in 2012 raised €126,884 that was spent on much needed equipment for ICU (Intensive Care Unit).
Since our maiden event in May 2012, we have continued our fundraising efforts with numerous small events at various locations. In December 2012 we presented Temple Street with an additional cheque for €25,000 that will be used to fund a mixture of play and hospital equipment for use by all the children that visit this very special Hospital. So in total for 2012 we raised over €150,000.
In 2013, our goal from the outset was to target raising €200,000 for an new Isolation Suite on the newly refurbished St. Joseph`s Top flat ward. And thanks to your support, and a very successful event, we were hugely proud to hand over a cheque for €200,000 to Temple Street.
In 2014, the Hospital asked to help raise funds for a new Ultrasound Scanner as part of the refurbishment of the Ultrasound Suite. Again with the support of "Cycle4Lifers", we managed to raise almost €140,000 making the new Ultrasound equipment a reality.
The success of Cycle4life is engrained in our team and our fantastic supporters. Without your help we could never have achieved what we have done. And to that we can only say
“ Thank You”
Our mission has been to help fund special projects with Temple Street Hospital that we believe will make a difference to patient care
