5 young Irish men with 1 crazy idea. 20 Countries. 3 Deserts. 2 Seas. 4 Mechanics. 5 Tows. 1 Unstoppable Car. 41 Days of travelling over 14,500km has culminated in this moment right now. We arrived in Ulaanbaatar today, after a week of travelling through Eastern Mongolia with no WiFi or phone coverage. Tomorrow we will officially cross the finish line, and nearly a year of planning and hard work will come to fruition. Thanks to everyone who has continued to follow and support us on this incredible adventure, we will post more in the next few days, and catch up on the updates we have missed, so keep an eye out. The reason we did all of this was to raise money for GoHelp and Make-A-Wish Ireland, so if you haven't already done so now is a great time to donate, just as we are on the cusp of completion, and you can do so through the link below. www.justgiving.com/the46atoMongolia/ After 6 weeks, the 46a is pulling in to the terminus, and honestly, even we can't believe it.

Wesley College Past Pupils Union shared Denise Ryan Lyme Disease Fund's event.
Please see below from Denise Ryan (class of 2002) who is fundraising for treatment of late stage Lyme disease. We'd encourage any interested past pupils to take part or donate!
My name is Denise, I live in Rathfarnham. I went to Wesley College from 1996-2002, my brother attended from 1995-2001. I have very fond memories of my time there.
I'm raising money for urgent treatment of late stage Lyme disease. My condition unfortunately went undiagnosed for a number of years and progressed quite quickly, so I have had to seek medical help in the U.S. where their knowledge and treatment options are more specialized. But the costs are very large.
An event is taking place for the Marlay Park 5k run on September 19th at 9.30am, with an entry fee of 20 euro.
If you can't take part but would like to donate, there is a fund page set up at gofundme.com/3000tenners ... See MoreSee Less

The Cause: Denise Ryan has spent the past year tirelessly fundraising to pay for her treatment of late stage Lyme disease in the U.S., with incredible determination to beat this disease and get well. But her illness has progressed quickly so she really needs our help now to raise money for critical treatment and medication. If you can't make it but would like to donate, you can do so at gofundme.com/3000tenners The Details: Marlay Park on Saturday, 19th September at 9.30am! €20 or/and you can do sponsorship.

Andrea SimmonsRemember this. The results are a truly defining life event. However the dice fall, they are a beginning and not an end. They are the launch pad of so much more. Life long learning awaits, through many chapters of your tumultuous existence yet to come! (Yours aged 47, 3 weeks away from completing a PhD that has taken 6 years alongside a full time job and a hectic life)... It never ends, because Wesley gives you the most awesome of foundations. Good luck class of 2015!3 weeks ago · 2

Lynn ChadwickAw I am so, so sorry to hear this, what sad news. Mr Reed was a fantastic man, a super geography teacher & everyone had such high respect for him even if he never taught them.

Nicolas YoungVery sad news indeed. I am thinking of Ida, his family and friends. He was an excellent teacher, whose geography classes I enjoyed for four years. Bob also had a great sense of humour, which I probably appreciated more when meeting him many times after my Wesley years. Rest in peace, Mr Reed.3 weeks ago · 3
