A very busy week for the Motiv8 LK team commenced with the usual bootcamp and cycling training schedule.
On Wednesday evening contestants were given a real feel for the third aspect of the Gaelforce Triathlon as they undertake a crash course in the basics of kayaking on Gartan lake.
Despite some initial trepidation (and the occasional rollover!) a very successful outing was had by all with Letterkenny Chamber President John Watson stating ‘It’s a pity the Olympics are so soon, with a bit more time I think I good grab at least a silver in this event’!
Fundraising for Motiv8 LK’s assigned charity Donegal Action for Cancer Care also intensified with a bucket collection around Letterkenny coupled with a car wash at Mountain Top on Saturday last.
Volunteers were once again joined by members of Downtown United FC and despite the weather, spirits weren’t dampened, with the public once again supporting generously.
DACC spokesperson Betty Holmes was once again thrilled with the day, stating that ‘for us it was great to know that many people were aware of the work of Donegal Action for Cancer Care and in addition wanted us to keep up our good work.
We are a voluntary group and convinced that what we are doing can make a difference. Thank you Motiv8 LK and the contestants in the challenge for supporting DACC.’
With less than two weeks to the Gaelforce Competition all nine contestants are primed for action and have really made incredible strides since training began on May 1st.
Motiv8 LK would like to thank all volunteers who helped out with fundraising duties on Saturday and the public who once again supported generously. An additional word of thanks to Letterkenny Shopping Centre, Kellys Mountain Top Centra and Club Voodoo who have also assisted greatly.
