Eamonn Mac Memorial Cycle - 29 September
Eamonn McLoughlin died tragically of colon cancer at the age of 46 and his family and enthusiastic friends, decided to organise a fundraising cycle in his honour, from Dunmanway, where he had many fond memories to the family home in Kilworth. The first year that Eamonn’s family did the event (2006), there were only four cyclists, since then the event has gone from strength to strength with 200 cyclists anticipated for 2012. The Eamonn Mac Memorial Cycle is a thoroughly enjoyable day out and has been a very successful event in the past raising over €90,000 for the Cork Cancer Research Centre.
This 100k event will start on the outskirts of Dunmanway at Fnalobbus House, Dunmanway, Co. Cork on Saturday 29th September 2012 at 10.30 a.m., with the route going through Ballineen, Bandon, Innishannon, The Viaduct (lunch stop), Cork City, Watergrasshill, Rathcormac, Fermoy, McLoughlin home in Kilworth.
Join over 250 people taking to the Kerry Way on Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July 2013 to hill walk approx 70km over three days. Led by experienced walk leaders, with groups of 25 to 30, allows you to walk at a pace suitable to your level of fitness.
The guided walks will start and finish each day in Kenmare and will incorporate impressive mountain views, dramatic peaks and glens, wild moorlands, wooded paths and lakes along the Kerry Way and Beara Way trails.
Challenging but fun, the great camaraderie on the routes adds to the spectacular settings and ensures a truly memorable experience. This event is a great opportunity to achieve a personal goal, to meet new people, keep fit or honour a loved one. Walk one, two or all three days and help raise vital funds for cancer research.
The Kerry Way Cancer Research Walk has gone from strength to strength over the past seven years raising a phenomenal €500,000 for cancer research programmes at Cork Cancer Research Centre thanks to your continuous support and generosity. Although we are living in challenging economic times, research must progress if we are to continue advancing new cancer treatments and positively impacting patient lives.
