CSI: Cycle for Care with Paul Kimmage
Sports journalist and former professional cyclist Paul Kimmage is calling on cycling enthusiasts nationwide to join him and his daughter Evelyn on the CSI: Cycle for Care in aid of the Irish Hospice Foundation this June.
The duo will lead the way, covering 600km across the stunning landscapes of Croatia, Slovenia and Italy in just 5 days. They will be pedalling for the IHF’s Nurses for Night Care service, which provides care to people in their own homes at the end of life right around the country.
The Kingspan-sponsored cycle, which has raised €1.7m for the IHF since it started in 2009, takes place from June 24th to June 30th. Over 3,000 families have been cared for by the Nurses for Night Care service with over 9,000 nights of care delivered since it was established. Demand for the service has doubled over the past five years and continues to grow. About €800,000 is needed to fund the service in 2018.
This is a fantastic way to challenge yourself and see the beautiful mountains and beaches of Croatia, Slovenia and Italy. Starting in Piran and staying in picturesque towns along the way to Trieste, you will be supported throughout your journey by the IHF team.
