Inaugural Event Held in 2022
SEAN SHARKEY MEMORIAL
Sean Sharkey Memorial
Those of you in the cycling community will remember we lost a very special boy last year, Sean Sharkey.
He just loved riding around in puddles, laughing and smiling. Peter, Fiona and Aoibheann are long standing dedicated members of our cycling family. We are honored to be hosting a cyclocross race in Sean’s name. Save the date – 30th January 2022.
All proceeds will go to The Maria Goretti Foundation, the respite centre Sean used to spend time in. It was his happy place only a few kilometers from the track. Here is a link for the gofundme page https://gofund.me/8f9ed670 We are accepting donations for this special centre to help them improve their facilities for boys and girls like Sean
2022 Event Report
We celebrated Sean Sharkey’s life today by riding bikes smiling and laughing. It was an honour to host this event for the Sharkey family. Our cycling family really came together today in what was a very emotional but happy day remembering Sean.
It was a hugely successful day with all proceeds going towards Seans respite center in Lordship, the Maria Goretti Foundation. The race raised a lot of money because we had very little expense. No prize money, no chips and the guys working at this event all waved their fees all in support of the center.
Today we raised €3’382.
Our gofundme raised -€2’881 ( still open https://gofund.me/8f9ed670 )
Aoibhinns bakery -€212.10
Total raise €6’475.10
Phenomenal! Thank you to each and everyone one of you.
