Michael Corcoran, MD of Soltec, the hazardous waste recycling specialists is preparing to take on the “ Into The West Cycle Challenge” in aid of raising much needed funds for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute (NBCRI).
The cycle involves a gruelling 300km return trip from Mullingar to Galway this weekend with an expected 150 cyclists taking part.
Michael started his cycling career only two years ago and has since racked up a number of long distance endurance runs. However, the forthcoming spin will provide a real challenge to him. Michael has being training over the summer for the event and feels he has the legs to go the distance.
The aim of the event is to raise money for NBCRI, which is a voluntary cancer research charity, located in Galway. The Institute was founded in 1991 and its key objective is to conduct research into the causes of Breast cancer and provide improved treatments for patients. It also raises awareness of Beast cancer and fundraises in order to provide better services to patients.
This year marks the 20th year of this event and coincidently it marts the 20th year Soltec has been in operation. To mark both Soltec will co-sponsor the event.
With over 2,500 new cases of Breast cancer each year the work carried out by NBCRI is vital and its continued support is required, if you would like to donate you can do so by following the ‘mycharity’ link below.
