Jigsaw, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, is rolling out a new virtual cycle challenge called Revolution x Jigsaw. Revolution x Jigsaw aims to get people from right across Ireland on their bike to cycle a combined 100,000km and raise €100,000 for Jigsaw by 5pm on Thursday 10thOctober, which is World Mental Health Day. Revolution is being led by four Jigsaw supporters, Stefanie Carr and Gabriel Greally from Galway, Róisín Dunne from Laois and Gary Cullen from Meath, who have each set an individual cycle challenge for people to join with them to complete.
“Revolution is a super new campaign that gives each person the opportunity to take on a challenge on their own terms and in their own time. All you need is access to a bike, any type of bike will do. A road bike, exercise bike, spin bike in the gym or your granny’s high nelly”, said Justin McDermott of Jigsaw,“Once you sign up, a Revolution x Jigsaw iDonate fundraising page is automatically created for you.
