Description

2019 daa Nicola Radford Charity Cycle

2019 will be the 9th Annual daa Charity Cycle. A hugely successful fundraising event for daa charities of the year. Last year over €18k was raised and this year we aim to raise more for our three very worthy charities. 

This year the charities being supported are:

- DEBRA Ireland

- Gary Kelly Centre

- Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland 

As the event is a charity fundraiser, sponsorship cards are available on request. Please make every effort to raise as much funding as possible for these great causes. Money raised can be donated on the morning of the event during the registration process. To request a sponsorship card email daacharitycycle@daa.ie.

The cycle will start and finish at Castlemoate House, Dublin Airport and take us through some of the pictureesque towns and villages of North County Dublin and Meath along the way.

This year's cycle will be run in memory of Nicola Radford, who passed following a short battle with cancer in 2015. Nicola was a colleague, friend and one of the co-organisers of the event in recent years and will be sadly missed at this years event.

Registration costs €30 + booking fee and all of the proceeds go to charities, as ALL of the event costs have been kindly sponsored and funded by daa and other generous companies.

The cycling jerseys (for the first 150 entratns) and goodie bags will be issued in the week prior to the event.

We would be grateful if everyone could wear the jersey on the day for easy identification to the marshals and to pay our respects to Nicola.

A BBQ will be provided for all participants at the finish line, so please hang around to welcome the remaining participants across the finish line.

The event has typically 100 participants each year, however we are planning to double that number this year to 200. Places will be limited to 200, so if you want to be part of this really enjoyable event, please register today to avoid disappointment.
