GSK’s annual fundraiser, the Wheelie Good Cause, was hosted by GSK Dungarvan on Saturday, 2 September. Over 200 cyclists and volunteers took part in the cycling event which followed two routes, one 50 and one 100km, through the local countryside. Both cycles started and finished at GSK’s OTC plant on the outskirts of Dungarvan. All funds raised at the event were donated to the Make-A-Wish foundation and a cheque for €7,000 was presented at the end of the event.

The Wheelie Good Cause has been GSK’s flagship fundraising event since 2012. The first two events were hosted by Dungarvan and it returned after three years away. Participants in the event signed up for either a 50k cycle or the more challenging 100k route. All involved actively fundraised or donated to GSK’s nominated charity for which many thousands of euros have been raised over the years. Make-A-Wish are the beneficiaries of the 2017 WGC with the aim of fulfilling a little boy’s dream of visiting NASA.

Commenting on the Wheelie Good Cause, GSK Dungarvan Site Director Brian Fox said,

‘I am delighted that the Wheelie Good Cause returned to Waterford this year and GSK Dungarvan have been proud to host it. There was great engagement from GSK employees, friends and family in support of the event and a lot of money was raised for a great cause – Make-a-Wish’.

Brian went on to say:

‘An event of this size and complexity just doesn’t happen without careful planning and support. I am very proud of how our organising committee pulled this event together. I am also very appreciative of the support we received from the Civil Defence, An Garda Siochana, Tony O’Mahoney Cycles, Villierstown Town Hall, Knockanore Community Centre and all the volunteers, stewards and marshals who contributed so much to the event’s success and safe operation’.

Emma Jones and her family, past recipients of a Wish supported by GSK, also attended the event and stated;

‘GSK employees have done a lot for Make-A-Wish and I am pleased that the Wheelie Good Cause was such a success. My son’s wish to go to Disneyland was fulfilled with support from GSK Dungarvan and it meant so much to him. I hope the little boy who is going to NASA will have an amazing experience.’

    Dr. StrangeloveFor anyone who is trying to follow what is happening on the Korean peninsula, what with its promises of delivering 'gift packages' to America, you cannot help but feel that there is a bizarre air of unreality about the whole thing. Trying to unravel the manner in which Donald Trump tries to express himself is one thing but that is as nothing when it comes to the North Korean leadership. What is very clear is that North Korea is adamant that it be allowed to develop its nuclear weapons cap …
