It’s the best way to experience the Ring of Kerry
for chasers, chain gangs and even a bag of spanners!
Aghadoe provided the breathtaking backdrop to today’s launch of the 28th annual Radio Kerry Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle. The 112 mile leisure cycle, which to date has raised €4.1 million for over 100 charities, takes place on Saturday, July 2nd 2011.
The seven principal charities which will benefit from taking part in the 2011 Radio Kerry Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle are The Irish Kidney Association, Kerry Parents & Friends Association, Friends of St Josephs House, Recovery Haven, The Irish Society for Autism, Skellig Stars and The IHCPT. 15 other charities will also benefit from funds raised through the cycle.
The Radio Kerry Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle is the biggest one day charity fundraising event in Munster. The 2010 Cycle attracted over 4,000 international cyclists of all ages and experience, taking part in a fun and rewarding day’s cycling, raising over €500,000.
PRO Cathal Walsh is looking forward to another successful year of the Radio Kerry Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle in 2011. He said that he hoped that the combined efforts of the Cycle committee, the teams of volunteers from the charities and the participating cyclists will once again result in a successful outcome for all concerned. He encouraged everyone to come out on July 2nd and support this event in whatever way they can.
It is the third year that Radio Kerry has been involved as sponsor of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle via the Radio Kerry Community Fund. Chief Executive of Radio Kerry Paul Byrne said that the radio station is very proud to be associated with this highly successful, long running event and its outstanding organisational committee.
