Get Breathless For COPD 2019
Raised So Far
After the success of the “Get Breathless for COPD” Cycle in May 2018, A. Menarini Ireland, in association with COPD Support Ireland, is once again calling on cyclists of all abilities to join them on a unique non-competitive, one-day cycle ride on the famous Ring of Kerry route. The 2019 “Get Breathless for COPD” has three options for cyclists, with 170 KM, 80 KM and 40 KM routes available, covering some of Ireland’s most beautiful countryside. This cycle aims to raise funds and public awareness, for those suffering from COPD in Ireland and will be a day to remember for all involved. This is a “full service” cycle and is supported by a professional crew of experienced guides and support vehicles offering mechanical assistance, a range of food, drink and snacks as well as cycling tips and pointers. The cycle will take place on September 21st 2019. More than 380,000 people in Ireland suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) but 270,000 people remain undiagnosed. This cycle will help to raise awareness of COPD, highlighting the importance and role of exercise in improving overall well-being and quality of life for COPD patients.
