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.

As part of the Musgrave Triathlon, we have been supporting various charities allowing them to provide a great service to communities throughout Ireland. See detail on some of these charities below:

Breakthrough Cancer Research

Breakthrough Cancer Research (Breakthrough) is an Irish medical research charity focused on cancer. They are our main charity for the 2017 Musgrave Triathlon. aims to provide a one-stop shop for the Autism community in Ireland. From providing the public and those with the condition to a portal of information about Autism, to serving a platform for people affected by Autism to share their stories and views, to providing a strong voice for the concerns of the community – has it all!

Focus Ireland

‘Challenge homelessness. Change lives’ Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. They are driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong.

The Musgrave Triathlon is a firm favourite for those looking to raise funds for a good cause in a fun and positive environment. The event attracts participants from communities all across Ireland and is an important highlight in our annual calendar. Every year we see an increase in the numbers of participants and are very proud of the support it provides to worthy causes. Working with our SuperValu and Centra retail partners, we are proud to support worthy causes such as Breakthrough Cancer Research and other regional charities to raise much needed funds that will help communities all across the country.

Each year the Musgrave Triathlon manages to outshine the previous year with a fantastic day of activities, family fun and fundraising. The support that Breakthrough Cancer Research has gained from the event is truly immeasurable. The Musgrave Triathlon has helped fund cancer research infrastructure, essential equipment and projects which are already impacting on patient’s lives. The support we have received from the staff, suppliers and customers through the event has allowed us to impact patients by finding ways to support nutrition during cancer care, deliver innovative new treatments through clinical trials and discover novel ways to attack cancer. Breakthrough Cancer Research receives no government funding and so the relationship with Musgrave Triathlon and its support of our mission cannot be overestimated – they really are helping us save more lives. Hope is our gift but together we are giving that gift to many more.


Breakthrough Cancer Research
The Musgrave triathlon is a great event which I look forward to each year. It’s a fun day, really well organised and great to see so many colleagues, friends, families, retailers & suppliers all participating together to raise money for great charities. I would recommend anyone thinking of getting involved to do so as the beauty of this event is that everyone encourages each other no matter what your level of fitness.
