Mace has been confirmed as an official sponsor of the 19th annual Tour de Munster charity cycle, which takes place in August. The charity cycle will take to the roads of Munster from August 8 – 11, raising vital funds and awareness for the Munster branches of Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI) and individual beneficiaries.
Details of the 2019 Tour de Munster including the 640km route were officially announced at DSI Cork’s Field of Dreams.
On August 8, more than 120 amateur cyclists will start the 640km, four-day tour around the six counties of Munster. They will be supported along their route by Mace. Mace stores lending support to the cyclists on route are:
- MACE Midleton,
- MACE Ballyrafter, Lismore
- MACE Castlemaine
- MACE Rathass, Tralee
Mace sales director Daniel O’Connell said the group is very proud to be associated with the event. “Our Mace retailers have really taken our support of Down Syndrome Ireland to their hearts,” he said, “and are delighted to support the cyclists on the Tour de Munster in any way they can.”
Funds raised from the tour contribute to the Munster branches of Down Syndrome Ireland each year by providing vital services for their members. The goal of DSI is to enable children born with Down syndrome to be as independent as possible, and through the great work of the Tour de Munster cyclists and supporters, DSI can access the funding needed to help more young people with Down Syndrome develop and flourish in practical ways.
