****IRONMAN for RISE****

Sidney Brito has taken on the huge challenge of doing an IRONMAN in Florida this November (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, 26.2 mile run) to raise funds for RISE. Sidney's target is to raise at least €2,000. You can sponsor him directly through his mycharity.ie page linked below.

We will be following Sidney's training and fundraising progress over the coming months and will keep you posted. Best of luck Sidney and thank you so much for taking on this challenge for RISE.
