Cycle For Dreams
From Tuesday 26th May until the 30th May 2020, Stephen Darby, former All Ireland winning footballer with Offaly and Rhode and former Offaly GAA and current Rhode footballer Paraic Sullivan take on the mammoth task of a 5 day continuous cycle in aid of the Make A Wish foundation and Rhode GAA.
This @cycle4dreams2020 challenge will mean that either cyclist will be on the bike for 5 days straight. Each cyclist will cover a distance of 1000km, a whopping 2000km collectively.
They will cycle in 6 hour sessions going through the night in order to raise vital funds for the amazing charity Make A Wish who help create amazing life long memories for children who are sick and battling difficulties circumstances.
Furthermore, the money raised will generate funds to help Rhode GAA club to progress and grow and be a continued success. A club that connects the community from young to old and is the focal point of the village and beyond.
