Here it is folks, Official highlights video of the 2016 Cycle4life event from our friends Black Umbrella
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.
With your incredible support, so far we've raised over €500,000 which has been used to fund much needed projects at Temple Street Hospital. 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.
"You don't have to be a doctor to save a life"
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 €500,000 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”
and we look forward to announcing details of where your 2016 funds will go in the very special place that is Temple Street Children Hospital.
Our mission is to continue to help fund special projects with Temple Street Hospital that we believe will make a difference to patient care
