Focus on Fitness has come together with SPAR to raise some much-needed funds for Make-A-Wish Ireland.

Four Focus on Fitness athletes from Waterford are going to cycle 2,300km around the coast of Ireland in just 11 days. This is no easy feat, especially with a total of 17,000 meters ascent.

This challenging route will involve cycling 200km, with an average of 1,800 meters of elevation per day. This cycle will be self-sufficient, with each person carrying all of their gear and equipment on the bike.

The cycle starts from Waterford City on August 6th and heads towards Cork along the Copper Coast. From here they will make their way up the Wild Atlantic way to Donegal, and back down the east coast, finishing back in Waterford City. 

This cycle trip is organised by Martin Kirwan, owner of Focus on Fitness. Martin has wanted to do this cycle for a long time, but never found the right time to do it. With a lot of sporting events being cancelled, Martin feels now is the ideal time to undertake the challenge. With charity’s struggling to organise their usual fundraising events, this is a perfect opportunity to organise the cycle, while helping Make-A-Wish raise money for families in need. 

We would really appreciate your support of this cycle for Make-A-Wish.
