Challenge Cycling Club partners with Down Syndrome Galway for the 2021 season!

Challenge Cycling Club based in Oranmore has announced it will partner with Down Syndrome Galway as their charity for the remainder of 2021. 

In a statement, Club chairperson Eoin McGrath said “In recent months we have been made aware of the impact covid-19 has had on some local charities and the struggles they face re-emerging from lockdown. Down Syndrome Galway is a small organisation providing vital services for children and young adults with Down Syndrome. They have a centre in Claregalway and have been forced to close their doors during the lockdown. Having recently visited the Claregalway base and met some of the children and parents, I can see first-hand the great work done.”

Challenge CC was born out of the desire to have a holistic approach to club cycling, with an emphasis on “Team” and rider development.

Their objective is to have a club that genuinely caters for all of our members no matter what their individual needs or focus.

Follow them on: Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

Over the next few months, several Challenge CC members have decided to take on some personal challenges, to raise awareness and funds by taking on two mammoth cycling challenges. 
  • The Donegal 555 On July 2nd – Eoin McGrath, Sean Duignan and several others from the Club will start in Letterkenny and continue around the perimeter of Donegal. The Donegal Atlantic Way Ultra Race involves covering over 555km non-stop in 24 hours.
  • The Mizen2Malin on the weekend of 30th July – the club is then taking on Mizen to Malin Head covering 646km over 24 hours!

Please get behind the crew in the Challenge CC and show your support for the cyclists on their challenge and raise some vital funds for Down Syndrome Galway.
