People of west Donegal will once again enjoy the exciting spectacle of hundreds of motor-bikers making their way along our roads.
These men and women come from all over Ireland, the UK, and further afield to get together to honour the memory of a young girl called Sandra Boyle of Killybegs, County Donegal, who tragically lost her life to leukaemia on the eve of her 18th birthday.
Her parents, Jim and Rosaleen, organise this charity event each year to honour Sandra and also to raise a lot of money for various charities, this year being The Mater Foundation.
Teddy bears and other soft toys are tied to fences, poles, trees etc. along route of the ride and bikers and cars on it usually have soft toys tied to them. It really is heart-warming and quite a sight to see and shows the support of so many for this event.
If you are on the route, please try to have at least one soft toy attached to your fence, gate, etc. And be sure to get out to wave to the bikers as they pass!
Tourists in any of the towns will enjoy this spectacle too ~ the noise of hundreds of motorbikes approaching will ensure they won't go by unnoticed that's for sure! Again, be sure to give them a big wave and get involved by adding pics or video clips to your social media hashtag it #SandrasRun #Donegal and whatever town you are in when you see them.
Remember: SATURDAY 2ND JULY 2002 is the day! For this years route, scroll down.
