The ICU4U event will see small teams of ICU doctors, nurses, paramedics, ambulance drivers, other healthcare staff and gardaí depart from hospitals in Limerick, Waterford, Belfast, Galway, Sligo and Cork on 2-3 September, with midway points in Dundalk, Athlone, Portlaoise and Kilkenny. The cyclists will pass through as many community hospitals as possible en route to Dublin, collecting white roses along the way to represent lives lost to the virus.
At the end of the cycle on Friday 3rd September, a brief commemoration ceremony will be held in line with public health restrictions at the Memorial Gardens Islandbridge. The memorial will remember the victims of Covid-19 in front of 7000+ white roses, which will be displayed at the gardens for the weekend.
On Saturday 4th September members of the public will be invited to visit the commemoration site to take a rose and remember a loved one, making a charitable donation if they so wish.
