M2M 2016 - Presentation of Funds Raised

M2M 2016 - Presentation of Funds 

On Thursday July 14th a group of very proud cyclists presented the cheques to the beneficiaries of their fundraising efforts - Breast Cancer Ireland (BCI) and Kilmacud Crokes Development Fund.  These funds had been raised through the Malin to Mizen cycle in June 2016. 

On June 1st the group of 50 cyclists embarked on the Mizen to Malin Club Cycle to raise funds for Breast Cancer Ireland (BCI) and Kilmacud Crokes Development Fund.

The event hit the targeted €100,000 and the final total was c.€108,000 with BCI and Kilmacud Crokes benefiting by c.€54,000 each after costs.

The distances cycled were as follows:

June 1st: Mizen Head to Killarney 119km
June 2nd: : Killarney to Ennistimon 132km
June 3rd: Ennistimon to Ballina 184km
June 4th: Ballina to Ballybofey 153km
June 5th: Ballybofey to Malin Head 102km

We wish to thank all the sponsors who contributed and in particular the contribution of the 2 main sponsors of Nissan and Sattal. All the individual sponsorship raised by the cyclists and other key club members including the House Committee has borne fruit with a great result. This reflected a lot of hard work by all the cyclists to meet individual targets.
The camraderie among the cyclists and support crew was magnificent and we would hope that more members will participate in future events and enjoy the cycling as a social and fitness outlet with other club members. It contributes to the overall club well being and raises much necessary funds for Kilmacud Crokes while also contributing to a worthy charity in BCI.
