Kerry Mobilises to “Spin the Ring” and support Kerry’s youth

On July 5th, just two days before the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle people will have the opportunity to take part in a unique, fun event all across the county.

The event is part of the KDYS Building Futures campaign and will take place in Killarney, Tralee, Listowel, Kenmare, Castleisland, Dingle, Cahersiveen and Killorglin.

People from the business community, sporting groups and community organisations will complete as much, or as little of the 180km distance of the Ring of Kerry as they wish!

The event is being proudly sponsored by Spin Street (Kerry’s first boutique spin studios) and also by the Killarney Chamber of Commerce.
Anyone who would like to participate in or support Spin the Ring can contact KDYS through their facebook page or by ringing 0868 411297. People can also support by texting “Spin” to 50300 to donate €2.

Mr Tim O Donoghue, KDYS CEO said, “We support young people in over 50 communities across Kerry. We are asking everybody to get behind Spin the Ring so that we help even more young people. People can help by signing up to cycle or Spin or by sponsoring a “Spinner” on the day. We would also like to say a huge thank you to Paul and everyone in Killarney Chamber for all their help and support, and to Tom and Sam at Spin Street for sponsoring the event. It shows what can be achieved when communities work together”.
