The people of Cork and surrounding counties will be aware of the extensive fundraising campaign to assist Rathcormac teenager, Sinead Kearney. All monies raised are going towards covering substantial costs associated with her treatment for Lyme’s Disease. There’s been a fantastic response to date and the hope is that this support will extend to a forthcoming cycle, scheduled for Sunday 30th August.
Fermoy Nissan, main sponsors
When organising an event like this, it helps enormously when a main sponsor comes on board. The Management of Fermoy Nissan had no hesitation in playing this important role and their financial backing is much appreciated.
Sunday 30th August is the day
Presently, it’s all systems go for the Cycling Ireland approved ‘Sinead shines charity cycle’ which will depart Rathcormac at 9.30am on Sunday 30th August. A demanding 100km route will take in Lisgoold, Midleton, Youghal, Tallow, Conna and Castlelyons. 100km isn’t ‘a spin to the shops’ and a reasonable level of fitness is required. Those who are more leisurely in their approach to cycling have a 26km family route option. The cost of registering for the 100km cycle is €25 on the day (a discount applies if you order on line www.sineadshines.org/cycle) Registration for family route is €5 per person on the day.
Lending their assistance
Fermoy Cycling Club, Order of Malta, St. John’s Ambulane and Three Counties Motorcyle Club have all kindly agreed to help out on the day and again, their collective expertise is a big plus.
Enjoyable event for a great cause
There’s still plenty time to oil up your two wheeler and invest in some cycling gear for what promises to be a feel good event for the most deserving of causes.
Anyone who would like to help out with stewarding on the day is asked to contact any member of the Committee.
