Tipperary cyclists to cover Mizen to Malin 600km trip for Down Syndrome Ireland
On Thursday, July 23 five courageous individuals from Tipperary will begin their four-day- 600KM journey from Mizen (Co. Cork) to Malin (Co. Donegal). They are raising funds for the Tipperary Branch of Down Syndrome Ireland. According to the group, selecting Down Syndrome Ireland (Tipperary Branch) as the charity partner was an easy one. Because one of the cyclists Michael Hassett has a child who along with over one hundred other Tipperary families who avail of their services.
Joining Michael on the cycle will be four friends; Noel Buckley (Clonmel), John Fitzpatrick (Clogheen) Mick Hayden (Thurles) and Conor Ryan (Horse & Jockey). Whilst 600KM is no easy task, it is made easy knowing all funds will go to a cause which does not receive any state funding and is run on a voluntary basis by parents and families of children and adults with Down Syndrome. As of last Friday morning, they have raised €4,000 and are hoping the people of Tipperary will row in behind their efforts to reach at least €10,000 They are covering the cost of accommodation, transport, food/drinks etc. themselves which means every cent will go directly to the Tipperary Down Syndrome Ireland Branch.
