Team RaboDirect

Claire who many of you will know is going to cycle 650km over four days in early September to raise money for the Gavin Glynn Foundation, she’s doing this along with a number of RaboDirect colleagues, both Claire and RaboDirect are big supporters of the club so I hope you’ll consider sponsoring them.

Background:

On 21st October 2014, four year old Gavin Glynn lost his three year fight with an extremely aggressive form of Cancer known as Rhabdomyosarcoma. Gavin was a big fan of Superhero’s especially Superman. But he was our Superhero. His dad John worked in Rabobank in Ireland during this time and a number of fundraisers were held to support Gavin’s treatment to assist in his fight. Unfortunately most of the treatment had be sought outside of Ireland and was very expensive. After Gavin’s passing his family setup the Gavin Glynn Foundation to support other families in a similar situation who need to travel overseas for cancer treatment. The Foundation provides money to take the financial burden away from families so they can fully focus on the needs of their child. Sadly one of the children the Foundation was assisting passed away this week which makes raising money even more poignant and important.

 

To raise money for the Foundation a group from RaboDirect are planning a four day cycle from the most southerly point in Ireland to the most northerly point commonly referred to as the Mizen to Malin cycle (M2M). The total distance of the cycle is 650km with a few hills along the way.

Our aim is to raise €10,000 for the Gavin Glynn Foundation and your support is much appreciated and much needed at this point in time. You can donate using the following link: https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11360379_mizen-2-malin-in-4-days-.html

Alternatively you can attend or provide raffle prizes for a Table Quiz that is taking place on Thursday, 29th September in the Hilton Hotel, Charlemont Place. 4 people per table, €10 per person. Your support would be hugely appreciated!!!
