Wheels For Wishes

Take the Wheels for Wishes Challenge this July!

Fundraise for Make-A-Wish Ireland this summer on wheels! The challenge is to cover 250km on your bike or pick another challenge for a wheeled instrument of your choosing! This could be via pushing your newborn in their pram or rollerblading every day! How you choose to wheel is completely up to you! The next step is to set up your fundraising page and tell us a bit about  the challenge you plan to take on. You can then share this page with friends, family and colleagues to collect sponsorship.  All funds raised will go to Make-A-Wish Ireland to help with the granting of life-changing wishes to children who are living with life-threatening illnesses. Anyone who raises over €250 will receive their very own Wheels for Wishes medal.

Below Ellie O'Brien introduces the campaign!
