DOWN SYNDROME: The Lapland to Limerick fundraiser comes to the streets of Limerick on December 9 when over 60 cyclists will cover a distance of 1800km on stationary bikes. Whatever the weather, these hardy men and women are intent on completing the final 1800 gruelling kilometres from Lapland to Limerick. All in a good cause, this exciting event aims to raise over €4020 for Down Syndrome Limerick, a euro for every Kilometre from Lapland to Limerick.! This fundraiser would not happen were if not for the incredible support of the cyclists and volunteers who have been busy organising the event.
The event itself has been organised by the HSE Mid West Cycle team in association with Down Syndrome Limerick, Cliona’s Foundation and Cycle for Sick Children. Over the past few weeks a team of cyclists have been busy accumulating the first 2200 km. On Sunday December 9 between 11am and 5pm, a group of cyclists representing each of the reindeers and Santa himself of course, will be on Thomas Street in Limerick and cover the final 1800 km.
So if you’re out Christmas shopping be sure and come by, enjoy some music and offer a show of support to our cyclists. Donations for the event can be made to bucket collectors on the day or on line www.mycharity.ie/event/lapland_to_limerick
