Peugeot Supports Ride Out for Prems
Peugeot has announced its support for Irish Premature Babies’ Ride Out for Prems 2012, a charity event taking place this April to raise much needed funds for baby intensive care units across Ireland. Over a four day period, a group of motorcyclists, led by a convoy of Peugeot cars and a van will travel around Ireland delivering equipment, bought through ongoing fundraising by Irish Premature Babies, to hospitals in Louth, Cavan, Donegal, Sligo, Galway, Kerry, Limerick, Laois and Dublin.
The annual event will take place from 26th to 29th April and members of the public are being invited to take part and see firsthand what a difference their fundraising efforts will make. With over 30 bikers already signed up to this year’s event, including members of the Garda Siochana and parents of premature babies, participants must raise €1,000 for the charity to become involved.
Emma Toner, Peugeot Communications Manager said, “Irish Premature Babies is a fantastic charity that offers a huge support network to parents with premature babies. Peugeot is delighted to be of assistance to the Ride Out for Prems 2012 event and has offered the use of four Peugeot cars and a Boxer Van to the cause.”
Every year in Ireland, 4,500 babies are born prematurely and tragically up to 500 precious babies die each year as a result of their early arrival. Baby intensive care units across the country desperately need funds to buy incubators, heart monitors, ventilation, cpap equipment and apnea monitors.
