A Trekker is attempting to set a record this week on the 19th May by being the first National Rehabilitation Hospital employee to boldly go where no trekker has gone before..... but why, I hear you cry?

Simply put the NRH is fundraising to raise funds for a new hospital to provide for the needs of the children and adults who need rehabilitation services in Ireland.


Some say Count dracula roamed the wilds of Transylvania. Legend has it, the centuries old vampire took his female guests back to Dracs Castle to wine and dine on them.

.......and later this is what happened to them.

Who knows maybe our trekker pal will run into some trekketes as he sets out to raise funds for the NRH. Win or lose hes a winner for competing in this 50 kilometer challenge.

So if you can find it within yourself why not share a few bucks. The National Rehabilitation Hospital needs your support. You can donate here.

UPDATE:  With Transylvania's Castle in the Background, a hearty CONGRATULATIONS goes to The 2018  50K WINNER Andrei Tale who set his second title with an amazing race record of 7h51:09 or is it 5h51:09? At any rate facebook has the Transylmania here

Which Star Trek character said the  "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one"

Live Long and Prosper.

Thats for sure Its a spectacular event and a worthwhile cause fundraising for people with disabilities, you can give as little as 3 euro.

A worthy cause and I bet it will attract a lot of attention.

Elephant's Child said...

GREAT cause. I hope he does really, really well. And enjoys himself in the process.

The event has already got a string of sports sponsors funding the event. What the NRH needs now is help raising funds from the general public. So, why not give a few bucks - price of a coffee and a doughnut.

Here's to hoping he completes his challenge easily.

Pat Hatt said...

A great cause indeed. Come back a winner and fitter.

Spacer Guy said...

You've got to think high to rise to win that prize.

Tony Laplume said...

Good luck with that.

Squid beat me to it! Interestingly or not, Uhura proclaims the opposite philosophy in the Star Trek: Gods & Men production, and calls it more logical. Take it for what you will.

Spacer Guy said...

Logic is the beginning of wisdom not the end but we're only human. We'll have to see who wins.
