Cycle Challenge 7 November

Six Ladies from the Killurin Rowing Club formed a cycling group, three of the ladies work in the maternity department at Wexford General Hospital. Two members of Wexford Wheelers Cycling Club, Phil and Annis and a friend Betty joined us on the challenge. Their challenge to raise money for Irish Cancer Society, Action Breast Cancer. They have raised 6593.00 and they nearly reached their target of 7000. Other male members of the Wexford Wheelers Cycling Club joined them at Arklow and Gorey and supported them through the journey. Their support was exceptional.

The group started at Bray Head at 7.50 am taking the coastal route and finally arrived at the Ferrycarrig Hotel Wexford at 4.40 pm. It was tough going for the cyclist but they achieved their goal.

The group were welcomed as they arrived at the hotel and 300 balloons was released at the Waterfront Suite.

Alice O'Sullivan, the first ever 'Rose of Tralee, kindly offered to help with the balloons.

Alice is a very active and interesting person has recently climbed up Mount Brandon, on 26 September, to raise money for charity. She is also a volunteer to help and train disabled and blind children to ski.
