The JT Inspires charity works to support the development of health, well being and in particular fitness initiatives to assist children and young adults with congenital heart problems to improve their quality of life. Initiatives include, research, fitness equipment and personal support.
CYCLE IRELAND 2014 was a fundraising event during which eight cyclists, including John and two support vehicles cycled from Mizen Head to Malin Head which is 442 miles. This cycle lasted 4 and the purpose of the cycle is to raise much needed funds for ‘JT INSPIRES’ to help highlight awareness of the work the charity is doing for local children suffering from Congenital Heart Disease in Northern Ireland.
“This was a tough event” said John afterwards, “and despite our decision to make the journey from the south to the north in order to take advantage of the prevailing wind, the weather on route was testing at times.”
“Nonetheless,” added John, “we all enjoyed the experience and sampled some of the most spectacular views on the island and all in the name of a very worthy cause”
Thanks to the efforts of all those who took part, over £13,000 was raised for the charity – see www.jtinspires.com for more information.
