Wheels For Wishes

250km Challenge

Make-A-Wish Ireland are excited to announce a new cycling event, Wheels For Wishes to run throughout July & August. Join ambassador and professional cyclist Nicholas Roche in cycling 250km over the two months in order to raise funds to help grant wishes to seriously ill children.

Participants can take part by bike, scooter, wheelchair or any set of wheels and log their kilometres on their Just Giving fundraising page. They can complete their 250km in a day, weekend, week, month or two months - the choice is yours! 

Registration is open to individuals, families or clubs. If you complete your 250km challenge and raise a minimum of €250 (or €500 per family/group of up to 5 participants) you will receive an exclusive Make-A-Wish medal, reserved especially for our Make-A-Wish heroes! Better yet, get your workplace involved with multiple teams and let the friendly rivalry to keep you motivated!
