Charity cyclists aim to reduce scoliosis treatment waiting lists

Ronan Daly Jermyn Managing Partner, Richard Martin, joined a team of 25 cyclists on a trip from Cork to Dublin on the 31st March in aid of the Straight Ahead Charity. And before they headed off, they celebrated the €15,500 they raised from their Santa Cycle, in which 300 people cycled through Cork City dressed in Santa suits. Cork’s first Santa Cycle raised the funds to purchase a scanner at Cork University Hospital. The scanner will allow children awaiting orthopaedic operations to have their condition reviewed in Cork. Families will not have as many journeys to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin. The Santa Cycle was held in association with the charity, Straight Ahead, which is run by Cork paediatric orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Pat Kiely.

Straight Ahead aims to reduce the HSE waiting list for scoliosis operations. Medical staff volunteer their time, while other costs are met through fundraising.
