CHARITY: Run, Walk or Roll for BUMBLEance

BUMBLEance is the official Children’s National Ambulance Service of Ireland. They transport children to hospitals, hospices and treatment centres in comfort and style – a bee journey. The difference they make to sick children and their families at their toughest times can’t be overstated. The average trip with one of their ‘bees’ is 185km. And they have a challenge for you – Run – Walk or Roll 185km in February and raise €185. Which will pay for a very important bee journey.
