The Co-Ordinator of Cycle Against Suicide, has contact the club and is looking to find Limerick homestays for 140 or so cyclists/crew on the night on May 2nd. The cycle starts in Dublin on the 23rd April and over the following 2 weeks they cycle around Ireland spreading their message;
“It’s OK not to feel Ok, and it’s absolutely Ok to ask for help”
Cycle Against Suicide wishes to spread this message across the entire island of Ireland, promoting positive mental health, and raising awareness of the help that is available and encouraging people to talk. It is also a great sporting event for cyclists of all abilities.
The Homestay Programme in an integral part of the cycle, and sees homeowners all over Ireland provide a warm meal, a chance to freshen up and a bed for the night to cyclists that are passing through their town. This is such a lovely way to be involved in this event.
Sadly most communities have been affected by suicide so this gives people a positive and proactive way of getting involved in this great movement without getting on your bike!!
We are posting this communication, to see if any members of the club would be interested in supporting this important event by providing a homestay for the night. The cyclists arrive Ardscoil Ris, North Circular Road, Limerick on Tuesday evening 2nd May, and leave from the school the following morning. Their bikes will be stored in the school.
