Join Paul and his daughter Evelyn on cycle challenge

Paul Kimmage is calling on cycling enthusiasts nationwide to join him and his daughter Evelyn this June.

SPORTS journalist and former professional cyclist, Paul Kimmage, is calling on cycling enthusiasts from Dublin to join him and his daughter Evelyn on the CSI: Cycle for Care in aid of the Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) this June.

The duo will lead the way, covering 600km across the stunning landscapes of Croatia, Slovenia and Italy in just five days.

They will be pedalling for the IHF’s Nurses for Night Care service, which provides care to people in their own homes at the end of life right around the country.

The Sunday Independent journalist said: “This will be my third Cycle Challenge in aid of such a vital service.

“On all my journeys with the IHF, I have heard many poignant and touching stories from my fellow cyclists about these inspirational nurses and the invaluable care they provide at the end of life.

“The Nurses for Night Care service allows people to spend their final days at home with their families.

“We all wish for a peaceful and comfortable experience for our dearest during their final chapter and by raising funds, we’ll be able to bring that reality one step closer for people.”

Paul added: “I am delighted my daughter Evelyn will be able to join me once again this year.

“We are encouraging cyclists of all abilities to join us on this stunning route.”

Flights, accommodation and full board are included and details can be found at www.hospicefoundation.ie or by calling 01 6793188.
