Here at bonkers.ie, we’re proud to announce that we’re sponsoring the unique Paris2Nice cycle, which aims to raise funds for a range of Irish charities.
We’re delighted to announce that bonkers.ie is sponsoring this year’s Paris2Nice charity cycle, which will take place during September.
Along with being one of the main sponsors for the event, our CEO, David Kerr, is taking on the challenging cycle to raise funds for the Irish cancer charity ARC.
Here’s all you need to know about the event!
What is Paris2Nice?
Paris2Nice is a non-competitive charity cycle that raises much-needed funds for charities throughout Ireland.
Cyclists of all ages, fitness levels and with different cycling experiences can participate in the cycle, which will cover 700km of French terrain.
Taking place between the 10th - 15th of September, and spread across six days, 63 cyclists from Ireland will begin their journey in the beautiful city of Paris and finish on the iconic Promenade des Anglais in Nice.
Within this group of cyclists are our founder and CEO, David Kerr, and his brother Alan. The two brothers will be cycling to raise money for the charity ARC Cancer Support Centres.
As well as having a member of our team partaking in the cycle, bonkers.ie is proud to also be one of the main sponsors of the whole event.
Two of our partner companies that we work with, Bord Gáis Energy and Zurich, are also sponsors for the jerseys being worn on the cycle.
What does ARC do?
David and Alan have chosen to fundraise for ARC Cancer Support Centres and all funds raised will go directly to the charity so that it can provide valuable services to those who need them.
Here at bonkers.ie, we understand the impact cancer can have on those diagnosed and their loved ones. There’s no doubt that we’ve all been touched by cancer, in some way or another.
With more and more people surviving cancer than ever before, ARC Cancer Support Centres is there to support and help those impacted after they receive a cancer diagnosis.
ARC offers thousands of cancer patients and their families extraordinary support through their cancer fight.
Its goal is to provide psychological, emotional, educational and practical support in a warm and welcoming environment to people with cancer and those who care for them. With this support, coping skills can be enhanced and improve the quality of life.
ARC provides all its services without any charge, and as such the charity relies on fundraising to offer its services.
The route from Paris to Nice
After taking off from Paris, the charity cycle will consist of six stops over six days. These stops include:
