Boobs and Balls Road Trip 2012 in aid of the South Eastern Cancer Foundation Solas Centre
In August 2011, a large group of motorcycle enthusiasts from all over Ireland, and further afield, gathered at Athlone to begin a motorcycle road trip that took 270 KM to complete and raised over €23,000 for the Solas Centre, South Eastern Cancer Foundation.
The support, enthusiasm and awareness that the event raised has got them doing it again in 2012!
