TO MARK World Suicide Prevention Day, Pieta House will hold their third annual Pieta 100 cycle on Sunday, September 10.
Three years ago the first Pieta 100 Cycle started in Limerick and the Suicide and self harm crisis centre has confirmed the cycle will be taking place in 6 locations across Ireland this year.
Once again, the Limerick venue is Mungret GAA club. People are encouraged to sign up for the Pieta 100 Cycle and choose the route that best suits their ability. Participants have a choice of doing the 100km or 50km route.
Pieta House CEO, Brian Higgins explains, “In the same way that someone out on a cycle can put a supportive hand on your back to help push you up a hill, that’s really the job of Pieta house too”.
He added, “I know just how much commitment and effort goes into a big cycle. There is a personal achievement that comes out of it, there is the achievement of meeting new people and having a good day’s craic. There is also the achievement of having raised money to keep our services free for anyone in our community who needs them”.
Pieta House are asking supporters to “Take a minute, change a life and sign up now”.
Those interested in taking part in the charity cycle are asked to register as soon as possible as places are limited to 500.
