RNID Northern Ireland is calling on fundraisers from Strabane to get on their bikes for a London to Paris cycle challenge and raise vital funds for RNIDâ€™s research and services for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The charity, which represents the 219,000 people in Northern Ireland who are deaf or hard of hearing, would like to hear from cyclists who are up for pedalling the 300km between the two cities on 26 â€“ 29 June 2009.
Places in RNIDâ€™s team are available to prospective fundraisers on a first come, first served basis by paying a registration fee of Â£150 and raising a minimum of Â£1000. People who sign up before 31 January 2009 will receive a 15% discount on their registration fee.
Caroline Jupe, RNID Events & Community Fundraising Manager, says: â€œIf youâ€™ve looking to lose the excess pounds youâ€™ve accumulated over the festive period, get your fitness in gear in the New Year by signing up for RNIDâ€™s London to Paris cycle challenge!â€
