Don't know where to start with this thank you but here it goes....
Thank you so very much to each and every single person that supported the cyclists along the way, to all of the Bed and Breakfasts/Hotels for wonderful accommodation, to all of the food establishments that provided food for the lads for much needed energy, to Philip Ward at Voodoo Venue for a warm welcome and refreshments upon their arrival into Letterkenny, to Arranmore Fast Ferry (Blue) for their generosity and of course the beer, to Arranmore Ferry (Red) for their support and generosity, to Marina and Thomas at Teach Phil Ban for the wonderful welcome and great spread of food, to each and every business who took a sponsorship card into their premises, to Terrance and all of the staff at Atomic Hair Salon, to John Gaughan and Packie McHugh. Big thank you to the social media ladies Gemma Gaughan and Becky Farrell for all of the daily updates. Melissa Rodgers thank you for cooking wonderful food for the gang. Clare Rose Bonar...thank you for all of you help and involvement x
Ryan MacDowell, thank you for travelling across the Atlantic to make a special day even more special. Such an emotional moment for everyone. Much Love to you x
To the community of Arranmore Island and the Pipe Band, once again, thank you for the wonderful welcome and support. Where else would you get it and it means the world to us.
Thank you to all of the Media outlets who have helped to get word out there.
Now to the wonderful group of men that took on this mammoth task. (Including the escorts John McHugh and Brett MacDowell) Thank you doesn't seem quite enough... each and every one of you should be incredibly proud of yourselves because I know we are and Katie will be too. What you have achieved is far greater than a 400km cycle, you have brought awareness to Mitochondrial Disease, you have allowed little Katie's story and beautiful little face to stand out in the minds of others, people who have never even met her. I have already had people contact the foundation based on the media attention the cycle attracted. That means more than anything to us. We love you all dearly and will forever have a special bond with you all. Aine Sailor, thank you for joining the cycle to Arranmore, your love for little Katie will never be forgotten and she will be looking down on you beaming with pride.
If I have forgotten anyone at all, I apologise... so many people have been so wonderful and we appreciate the support so so much.
Finally, thank you Katie Rose Rodgers. We love you and we miss you more and more every day. xxx
Now.....where are you's cycling to next year???? lol
