Omega Three

The Omega Three Return Triumphant

Posted August 29th, 2012
Congratulations to The Royal College of Surgeon’s Ireland team who achieved second place in Go Help’s Mongolia Charity Rally.
Over 4000 miles and many adventures later, third year RCSI medical students Robin McManus, Grant Dawson and Tristram Hills, who took part in the rally this summer, have returned to Ireland.
The team left Ireland on the evening of 6th July and made it to Ulan Bator some 5 weeks later. Their journey took them through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Ukraine and Russia before reaching the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar.
Great bunch of lads and a very cool project for them to get involved in. They kept everyone back home up to date with a really entertaining video log on their facebook page, take look:

The Mongolia Challenge and Omega 3

Posted June 18th, 2012

On Friday I met with The Omega 3 team: 3 medical students from the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland who are taking part in the Mongolia Rally 2012, run by Go Help, which involves them travelling 12,000 miles from Dublin to Mongolia in a patient transport vehicle.

Their trip will take 5 weeks to complete and will begin from Dublin on the 6th of July. In the meantime they are doing everything they can to raise funds for Go Help’s community projects in Mongolia. At the end of their journey they will also be donating their vehicle to Mongolia’s first ever ambulance service.

Their journey will see them cross 18 borders and the route is as follows: Ireland (Dublin)- Britain (London) – France (Lille) – Belgium – Luxembourg – Germany (Munich) – Austria (Salzburg) – Italy – Slovenia (Ljubljana) – Croatia (Zagreb) – Serbia (Belgrade) – Bulgaria (Sofia) – Greece – Turkey (Istanbul, Trazbon) – Russia (Sochi, Vladikavkaz, Astrakhan)– Kazakhstan (Astana) – Mongolia (Ulaanbaatar).

The team are having a street collection on Saturday the 22nd of June outside the Royal College of Surgeons at 123 St Stephen’s Green. Go there and check out the car and donate what you can.
