Cycle Against Suicide


22nd April – 5th May 2013 The Cycle Against Suicide (www.cycleagainstsuicide.com) is an initiative created by Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen, as a result of his appearance on RTE’s The Secret Millionaire programme in September 2012.

There are two core objectives of the Cycle:
• To raise awareness of the supports that are available for anyone battling depression, self-harm, those at risk of suicide or those bereaved by suicide.
• To ignite more cohesion between, and awareness of, the various organisations working to prevent suicide and provide bereavement support in Ireland.

The Event The Cycle will take place from Monday 22nd April to Sunday 5th May 2013, offering a tangible, practical opportunity for people who want to help support those who are affected by suicide. The Cycle will visit locations all over Ireland, with events hosted at 28 schools, colleges and universities along the journey. Cyclists can participate in as many or as few legs of the Cycle as they wish at a cost of €40, to cover the official jersey and insurance. This fee has been reduced to €20 for students and the unwaged. Register TODAY Register now at: www.cycleagainstsuicide.com/register
