A Letterkenny University Hospital porter has set himself a gruelling challenge of cycling 300km in one day for Pieta House.
Paul Doherty, aged 27, is an avid cyclist, but this month he will go above and beyond to raise funding for the vital mental health services at Pieta House.
Paul plans to hit the road on 13th June and will stick to a 20km radius from his home in Killyclug. He’ll be making the most of the many roads and backroads in the area to cycle to Raphoe, Ballybofey, Creeslough, etc.
In all, the challenge could take over 10 and a half hours.
Paul’s family and friends, especially his mum Bridgeen and girlfriend Maeve, will be helping him along the way by supplying the fuelling foods he’ll need to go the distance.
The GoFundMe campaign has already got off to a great start, as Paul has already raised almost €500 with two weeks to go.
Paul said: “All funds raised will be going straight to Pieta House in order to help keep the service running in the North West of Ireland and as we all know it is a much needed service across the country.”
