Join Team Sheila in our challenge to raise money for Hope Cancer Support Centre. We will be solo cycling 1100km in less than 68 hours with a support crew. The race is the Irish Ultra Challenge a qualifying race for Race Across America.
In Memory of the late Sheila Hutchinson, Wife to Tony, Mother to Collette, Ian, Elaine, grandmother to her 10 loving grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren and an inspiration to anyone who knew her.
Our goal is to complete a Solo 1100 km cycle map linked here, half way around Ireland in less than 68 hours in memory of the late Sheila Hutchinson.
We also hope to raise money for the Hope Cancer Support Charity.
As anyone who would have known Sheila, knows this was where she gave alot of her time to, in respect to her memory we decided to take part in this event to raise money for her favourite chairty.
We would also like to let people know there will be no moneys donated to this event that will be used to complete this event, it is all out of our own pockets, the sponsors that support us will only do so with support such as equipment that is theirs or services that they provide that can aid us in our cycle.

The Hope Cancer Support Centre is looking forward to meeting everyone on WednesdayJune 21st on Curracloe beach for what promises to be a truly wonderful evening. The evening will begin at 8pm with an opening ceremony.
The walkers will quietly and mindfully walk along the beach. It will end with some meditation and a candlelight summer solstice Ceremony of Healing and Light. We wish to emphasise that the 21st of June is not a race or marathon but more a leisurely evening of walking in nature and slowing down to enjoy the many gifts that Curracloe beach has to offer. It is a chance to come together in a positive way for a night of healing and remembrance of all things positive in our lives. So whatever your own private intentions are, it is an opportunity for you to touch in to those on the night.
The Hope Cancer Support Centre provides emotional and psychological support for people diagnosed with cancer and for those who care for them.
We would like to invite the general public to an open day in the centre on Tuesday 13th June. The aim of the day is to inform people about the support services available and offers an opportunity to meet the staff, therapists and volunteers and to have a look around the centre,
Tea and coffee will be served in the Sun Room during the day.
