Cycle and hike Ireland

Hi, my name is Adam. I am going to attempt to be the first person to cycle around the coast of Ireland while also climbing the highest mountain in each county that I go through. 

I will be climbing a total of 13,147 meters,the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest 1.5 times, and cycling 1,689 km, the distance between Dunmore East, Ireland, to Reykjavik, Iceland. My challenge starts on the 16th of August 2020.

I am fundraising for the Solas Cancer Support Centre in Waterford. The Centre provides free cancer support to people in Waterford and the South East. They provide support to those affected by cancer, their families and carers with a safe place; a place to talk things over, to relax and express emotions.

This year the Solas Support Centre, like many charities, has had its fundraising effected by the Covid 19 crisis, and so I'm just trying to raise some funds to help them out.

In 2012 I lost both of my Grannies to Cancer within two days of each other, and so this is a very personal campaign for me.

I would be grateful if you could support me in trying to raise as much funds for this great cause, that helps so many people. 

Thank you.
