Speaking about the Malin2Mizen Cycle4CF, Michael called for people to register now for the cycle to help support people with Cystic Fibrosis in Ireland:

“The Malin2Mizen Cycle4CF 2019 takes places from Thursday, May 9th to Sunday, May 12th and I am putting my hat in the ring for this great event. 

"I would like to say a huge thank you to Eurocycles on Longmile Road for providing me with a bike, all the gear and a training plan, so that I now cannot throw in the towel on Malin2Mizen Cycle4CF 2019.

"I am delighted to be taking part in this great event, raising awareness of cystic fibrosis and also raising much needed funds. "In the 2018 cycle, 40 cyclists delivered a knock-out punch raising over €140,000 which helped fund grant payments for people with cystic fibrosis to help them with exercise, which is important for all of us, but can be a matter of life or death if you have cystic fibrosis.

"The funds also helped support the transplant team in the Mater, who do such an incredible job, performing life-saving double lung transplants for people with cystic fibrosis every year. I would encourage anyone who is interested in joining me for what promises to be a fantastic 4 days of cycling and a mighty bit of crack to register now on at www.cfireland.ie. Places are limited so sign up now!“

To take part in the Malin2Mizen Cycle4CF, register now at www.cfireland.ie. The fundraising target for participation in the cycle is €2,000 which covers your food and accommodation over the 4 day cycle. Registration closes on January 25th.
