This year’s 14-day Cycle Against Suicide main cycle started in Dublin’s Phoenix Park on Sunday, April 24th, and concludes back in the Capital on Saturday, May 7th. This year’s route stretches 1,100 kilometres from Cavan to Clonmel, Glenties to Gorey and back again. Aimed at promoting an important message: ‘It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help’, Cycle Against Suicide is positively changing our mindset and behaviour around mental health and emotional wellbeing. Cyclists and support crew will be arriving in Roscommon town on day 7 of the Cycle, Sunday, 1st May at 1 pm at Hannon’s Hotel.
Roscommon town, will host an inspiring, informative, and energetic event, comprising of presentations from guest speakers, entertainment, and exhibitions from local and national Mental Health organisations.
Cycle Against Suicide was founded by Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen, following his appearance on TV documentary, ‘The Secret Millionaire’ in 2012.
There are still many ways to become involved in breaking the cycle of suicide on the island of Ireland: cycle for a leg, a day or even the weekend. You can stand on the footpaths and pavements to welcome cyclists as the peloton arrives or departs from Roscommon town. Make your presence felt on the streets of Roscommon. You can display orange outside your homes or business as we pass. You can have orange tractors or bikes, teddies, plant pots or posters displayed. Please see www.cycleagainstsuicide.com for more information or contact Emma Dempsey 087-7604994 if you wish to volunteer on the day.
