Raising Money for Charity since 2002
Now in its 18th year the triathlon has raised €4.6m for charities over the last 17 years. 2018 funds were distributed in the following ways:
- €120,000 to Breakthrough Cancer Research. This was used to fund The Musgrave Cancer Research PhD Scholarship in association with Breakthrough Cancer Research represents a new partnership to fund world class cancer research in Ireland while educating the next generation of cancer research. Funding for a 3 year PhD Scholarship will be provided to take place at any University in Ireland currently engaged in cancer research and is open to researchers in Clinical, Biological, Epidemiologic or Public Health fields, so long as it is patient focused and with the ultimate aim to improve cancer care and increase survival.
- €35,000 to AsIAm. These funds were used to Employ a Community Support Officer on an initial 1 year contract to provide one to one advice and guidance to the autism community. Also to organise a series of events across the country addressing issues which the Community Support Officer identifies are common trends and challenges for the community.
- €35,000 to Focus Ireland. These funds were used to help 45 young people leaving state care to access the support, skills, education and develop the confidence they need to live independently.
