The Mayo Ultra Cyclists arrived at the construction site of the Roscommon Hospice on Monday night. Mayo/Roscommon Hospice Foundation is one of the four charities which this year’s challenge is raising funds for (along with Down Syndrome Ireland West, turn2me.ie and Temple Street Children’s Hospital Foundation).
The cycle is in memory of 11-year-old James Moore from Monaghan who passed away in June. The funds donated to Mayo/Roscommon Hospice will go directly towards the construction of the Roscommon Hospice.
The cyclists will cover 32 counties and 1900km in 6 days and arrive back in Swinford on Friday August 21st.
