Salesian Cycle Challenge

January 25, 2022

Mark the date in your diaries! We need  marshals and of course cyclists for the Salesian Cycle Challenge (3rd edition)!

The event is taking place on April 3rd 2022 (registered with Cycle Ireland) and comprises a 40 & 80 km cycle in the West of Limerick.

Salesian Secondary College and its Parents’ Association are organising the third annual Salesian Cycle Challenge. This year the focus is on raising much needed funds for the upkeep and running of the SVP Drop-In-Centre in Hartstonge Street Limerick.

The Centre provides Day Care Facilities to those who have nowhere to go including: 

·         Street homeless who cannot access hostel accommodation

·         Homeless people who are placed in Bed and Breakfast accommodation but who have to vacate their rooms during the day

·         People in hostels who need to move out during the day

·         People with accommodation who are doing badly and living in relative isolation and poverty

·         People living alone and in need of companionship and contact

Cyclists will be able to register soon on the Cycle Ireland website & can also register on the day in the school. We will also be calling on Marshals through the school’s app.

Finally, TY Students are organising the very first Salesian Bikathlon Challenge on Friday 1st of April, on stationary bikes and turbo trainers in school.  They are fundraising for Research for Meningitis. More information to follow!
