Cathy Padmore from Manorcunningham is heading across the Channel to France for the 7th September 2013 for a cycling challenge to raise funds for Epilepsy Ireland
Cathy is training hard on a daily basis for the tough event where she will be taking on Mont Ventoux in France.
Cathy works as a specialist in the epilepsy field across Ireland for the US Company Cyberonics and works closely with the Charity Epilepsy Ireland. Epilepsy Ireland was established in 1966 and was formally known as Brainwave. Epilepsy Ireland is committed to working for, and to meeting the needs of everyone with epilepsy in Ireland and their families and carers and is a massive support service across the country. She is hoping to raise in excess of a €1000 for the organisation and asks for any donations to be sent to www.mycharity.ie and look up Cathy Padmore.
