As some of you may know Cork Tri Club Member Rory Galvin is taking part in Ironman Lanzarote next month.
Rory is doing this as part of his “Three Challenges for One Cause” fundraiser for Shine Ireland. IM Lanzarote is the final of his three challenges and may very well be the hardest, this is going to be Rory’s first Ironman and he is not making it easy for himself as IM Lanzarote is known for it’s very hard bike course with strong head winds, hills and heat.
Shine is a Voluntary Organisation and Registered Charity established in 2001 by the parents of autistic children to offer support and share information on services for their children. Shine has grown year on year since then and now offer services and support to 80 children through the Shine Centre based in Carrigaline Co Cork and over 250 families across the South Munster region.
