Cyclists of all levels and ages have rallied together for the annual Murphy Surveys’ Kilcullen Cycle for Crumlin and donations are still being accepted for the worthy appeal.
Participants set out from Murphy Surveys’ headquarters in Kilcullen early on Saturday morning last, July 23, for what was another very successful fundraiser. The turnout was fantastic and the rain stayed at bay for the riders who took off at 10am to do the 100KM route and 10.30am for the 50KM route, organisers Caitriona Hanly and Joanne Scanlon explained.
On registration each participant received a gift bag from Murphy Surveys, each bag was filled with snacks, water and skin protection lotions and moisturisers from Burke’s Pharmacy in Kilcullen as well as a complimentary day pass to Énergie Groups’ fitness centre, Naas.
“Families and friends of the cyclists got to relax and enjoy some refreshments while they waited with their children who got to play in the fantastic bouncy castle provided by Scats Bouncing Castles.
“The atmosphere was jovial as the cyclists made their way back to the Kilcullen office and got a chance to enjoy the delicious food from Briqo Catering as well as a host of treats and nibbles courtesy of Murphy Surveys.
“There were smiling faces all around as riders took a moment to relax after all their hard work. All of us at Murphy Surveys and Kilcullen Cycling Club would like to say a huge thank you to all those who turned out on the day and for supporting Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin with their generous donations,” Marketing Executive, Joanne Scanlon, added.
The company commended a host of companies and individuals who rallied together for the fantastic cause. These included Liam Walker and Kilcullen Cycling Club, Briqo Catering, Scats Bouncing Castles, Burkes Pharmacy in Kilcullen, Energie Fitness Naas, The Osprey Hotel and the Talbot Hotel Carlow who sponsored some great prizes.
