We are asking our members who cycle to raise money which is vital for our charity partners to exist. 2020 has been an unprecedented challenge for all charities as they struggle to make raise funds through normal channels. With over 4,000 members we hope to be able to give back to our charity partners. At some point in our lives, we have all been touched by the effects of cancer. The charities we have selected are very close to our own hearts in Team IRL Cycling, as Richie Sheerin, one of our key admin members is currently undergoing treatment for cancer. In March of 2018, Richie an active and fit runner, cyclist, and Gaelic football player was diagnosed with Myeloma, a bone marrow cancer. If you want to hear more of his story click here.
We have a target of 4,000 (€1 per Team IRL Member) to reach and exceed with your help. So please pull on your best lycra and get pedaling for these charities, not a cyclist just click, donate and share our story with your friends and family.
