On Sunday 10th of September, World Suicide Prevention Day, we gathered to Cycle for Hope once again in aid of Pieta House.
We were delighted to have such strong engagement from our contacts in the construction industry. Ardmac matched all funding and as a result we have raised over €62,000!
We hope to have also encouraged conversation and raised awareness of mental health services and supports through our campaigns in the months leading up to the Cycle for Hope itself.
Pieta provide professional, one-to-one therapeutic services to people who are in suicidal distress, those who engage in self-harm, and those bereaved by suicide https://www.pieta.ie The funds raised will support and provide services to many who are going through their most difficult moments.
We hosted the cycle from Swords Business Campus with great support from Swords Cycling Club. Cyclists joined us from all over Ireland and even flew in from overseas to participate. We had 123 fantastic cyclists and walkers on the day.
There is still time to donate: https://eventmaster.ie/fundraising/campaign/Ardmac_Cycle_for_Hope__Fundraising_Campaign_2023_in_Aid_of_Pieta
“Cycle for Hope embodies our dedication to ‘building better’ in the community. It’s more than an event; it’s a testament to our own values, uniting our community to make a tangible difference for a fantastic organisation like Pieta, that supports people during their most challenging times.
We are committed to giving back where we can, and we take that very seriously. Building our community is key to a better tomorrow for all generations.”
