Donal O’Connor Memorial Cycle
Sunday 9 September 2018
Donal O Connor Memorial Cycle is a family friendly cycle along the beautiful Waterford Greenway. The event, now in its 7th year, aims to create awareness of positive mental health while opening a conversation around suicide prevention and giving people a chance to reflect in a positive and supportive atmosphere.
The event will have two starting points, WIT Arena & Dungarvan Clonea and will end at the Coachhouse Coffee Kilmacthomas on the beautiful Waterford Greenway.
Organisor of the cycle is Mags O’Connor, “Sadly I lost two of the most important people in my life to suicide. My brother died in December 2010 and my husband Donal followed in November 2011. I was absolutely devastated by these losses, my boys were my world and I will never be the same again. I decided to try to do something to raise awareness and to bring people together and so Donal O Connor Memorial Cycle was born in Sept 2012”.
All funds raised go to Waterford Marine Search & Rescue, a 100% voluntary organisation who run suicide prevention patrols in Waterford city.
You can register for you tickets at “Everbrite”.
