Hi All, on August 10th I'll embark on an epic 640km cycle around Munster!! Over 4 long days we will traverse the high roads and byroads, up the mountains and down the valleys. Using every ounce of blood, sweat and tears possible........It's probably not going to be as daunting as that, but it'll be 7-8 hours cycling for 4 days which is something I haven't done before.

What's it all for?  The Tour de Munster is a massive fundraising effort for the Down Syndrome Munster branches. Close to €2million has been raised over the last 8 years alone. This year they have allowed the cyclists to also raise funds for charities close to their own hearts.  The MooreHaven Centre in Tipperary is very close to my heart.  It is the adult learning centre where my sister Sarah has attended for the last 4 years.

The MooreHaven Centre is a Centre for adults in the mild to moderate range of intellectual disability.

They provide a day service for over 100 adults and a residential service for 19 adults attending the day service from a catchment area that extends for a radius of up to 30 miles from Tipperary Town. ( www.moorehaven.ie)

The adults that attend learn valuable life skills, working and leading structured normal lives. Without a Centre such as MooreHaven, this might not be possible.

I've already fully paid to enter this tour, so every donation is going straight to The Moorehaven Centre.   I am hoping to raise a €1 per kilometre, so anything that can help me on my way to that target will be greatly appreciated.
 
Thank you.

Thanks to everyone who sponsored me this summer. I started out with a target of €1 a km, but due to great support and generosity, I crashed through the €4 a km barrier and was able to hand over a cheque for € 2,507.00

Hi All,

Pretty overwhelming so far. I've nearly reached the 2nd target already, perhaps I will have to increase it again :) Thank you so much to all that have already contributed. It is far more than the 37 people on the picture as the card running totals are combined together for the offline donations amounts. It is all greatly appreciated.

Training was pretty low key this week due to a slight calf injury from the half marathon which was followed up by a nose injury in a match I wasn't even playing in!! But both should clear up by this weekend so I'll be back on the bike again.

As previously mentioned, for those that don't want to make an online contribution, I have sponsorship cards out with a few people, and they are also available in The MooreHaven Centre itself.

Only 3 weeks to go now, so it is almost time to start looking ahead at the long range weather forecasts!!

Thank you for all the shares so far. Don't forget to check the route to see when we will be passing through your town or village as hope to see a few friendly faces along the way. There is a poster available for anyone that would be able to display same.

Thanks.
Alan

Hi All,

This weeks update starts with the excellent news that I have already surpassed my original target of €640. Thank you to all the generous donors so far. With 4 weeks now left to go, I will increase the target remaining to €2/km and hope to get to €1,280. I'm already well on the way to this target :)

Last weeks training consisted of a very tough half marathon in Cahir, but it felt like running in the Sahara desert it was so hot!!!

This week I should be back on the bike again. After 2 weeks of running around, it will be nice to sit down for a change!! Hopefully I will remember how to pedal :)

Thanks
Alan

Down to 5 weeks to go now!! The sponsorship cards are done and the GoFundMe page is flying. Nearly half way to the target already!! Thanks to all that have donated so far!

This weeks training was minus the bike and didn't go as well as hoped but the magic tape has worked and full steam ahead for the Cahir Half Marathon on Sunday
