Naval College Cycle-A-Thon

  • Blackpool Shopping Centre (map)

Taking to their bikes at Blackpool Shopping Centre on Saturday 3rd February will be the students of the Naval College in Haulbowline.

They are hosting a Cycle-A-Thon in aid of Cork ARC Cancer Support House to raise awareness about the supports and therapies available at Cork ARC, such as counselling, therapeutic massage, art therapy and mindfulness, all designed to alleviate the stress of a cancer diagnosis.

They are creating awareness to encourage all those affected by cancer to seek support, and that support is available, free of charge at Cork ARC Cancer Support House on O’Donovan Rossa Road, Bantry, Youghal and on Friday mornings at the NICHE Community Health Project on Harbour View Road on Cork’s North side. 

The Naval College inducts, trains and educates Naval Service personnel for the challenges of naval life in the 21st Century. These challenges include an ability to respond effectively to the legal, political, economic and scientific challenges that will arise in an ever-changing global arena. It's very encouraging to see that the future leaders of our naval service are so committed to the work of Cork ARC Cancer Support House.

We'd like to thank the staff and students of the Naval College who have really got behind this event to help raise essential funds and awareness to benefit the visitors of Cork ARC Cancer Support House.
