THE STORY:

I am taking part in a charity motorcycle challenge across America on the famous Route 66 on a Harley Davidson to raise money and awareness for Temple Street Children's University Hospital in Dublin. The Temple Street Foundation raises funds to enable Temple Street Children's University Hospital to provide world class care to Ireland's sickest children. The hospital, originally founded in 1872, treats approximately 145,000 sick children each year. The money raised from our challenge will help the hospital purchase life saving equipment, finance research, and redevelop hospital facilities as well as providing care to patients and family members. The Route 66 motorcycle challenge has accumulated 750,000 miracle miles for one of Ireland’s finest hospitals. This is a bi-annual trip and it has been running since 2002. The total trip takes 14 days and will see our bikers and pillions travel through 9 states and 4 different time zones. Traveling from Illinois through Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and finally California. Route 66 was the path of migrants, dreamers and desperadoes in the 1950’s and many of the route’s classic restaurants, gas stations and nostalgic landmarks are preserved just as they were. The people, the land and the scenery all lend to the mixture that makes this wonderful road so beautifully addictive. And what better way to see it than on a motorcycle. As they ride this wonderful road, always on a 66er’s mind are the brave little patients in Temple Street that urgently need the best possible care that can be given to them. To date this fundraising challenge has raised over €2.5 million for sick children and the impact of this trip is visible throughout the hospital. Our big hearted bikers have helped to redevelop critical wards and purchase vital life-saving equipment. Special Event’s Manager Angela McNulty has managed this trip for 12 years! Dates: 21st September Dublin/Chicago – 05 October LA https://www.templestreet.ie/event/route66/
