Ride2amillion is a 10-day event cycling over 1,500km from Malin Head to Mizen Head in Ireland - the most south-westerly point to the most northerly point. The plan is to depart on July 30th and arrive on August 8th.
The event is the craziest 5FTF challenge to date. The route follows the rugged and famous coast of the Wild Atlantic Way - touching the counties of Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Fermanagh and Donegal. It's certainly not the direct route!
The cycle is in aid of 5 For The Fight, a crowdfunding campaign for cancer research. The mission of 5 For The Fight is to put more researchers into the field in order to make strides and eradicate cancer. Over the past 4 years, 5 For The Fight has raised over €950K and hired 3 cancer researchers. Our goal is to raise an additional €50,000 which brings us to €1 million raised hence the name Ride 2 a Million!
Achieving this goal will allow us to set up 2 brand new research positions for 3 years. Our partners Breakthrough Cancer Research have been devastated by COVID losing the majority of their fundraising, this event means more now than ever before. Your support will go a long way.
