EPS supports Better Life Cycle in aid of St Joseph's Foundation

Members of the EPS team recently participated in the Bay to Bay ‘Better Life Cycle’ in aid of St. Joseph’s Foundation.   The charity cycle covered a distance of 230km starting in Dublin and finishing in Galway – going from coast to coast in one day. In total, 150 cyclists participated in the challenge raising just over €50,000 between them for the charity. 

All groups set off at 7.30am from the White Sands Hotel in Malahide with the first groups arriving in Galway at 4.00pm.  The EPS team made it to the finishing point, the Pillo Hotel in Galway, at 7.00pm. There were no relays and everyone covered the distance in full.  The final group completed the challenge at 9.00pm.  

St Joseph’s Foundation based in Charleville, Co Cork is a charity which helps those with disabilities to live normal lives.  The services they provide include respite care, elderly care, pre-school, hydrotherapy, home support and occupational workshops.
