The annual Cycle4Haiti has introduced an inter company challenge and is looking for Irish businesses to enter a team of four for the Dublin to Galway cycle for the Soul of Haiti Foundation taking place over the May Bank Holiday weekend of 3rd and 4th May 2014.
This is the fifth year of the cycle that was founded by Michael Dawson of One4All and has raised a significant sum for relief of poverty and suffering in Haiti.
The Cycle has always had a strong business network at its core, with many of the finalists from the EY Entrepreneur of the Year taking part and getting to know each other in a way that would never otherwise be possible.
“When you are feeling the same pain in your legs as your colleagues that creates a special bond which carries through into wanting to do business together,” said Michael Dawson, who was also a key player in introducing the Bike to Work Scheme in Ireland and who remains a keen cyclist himself.
The Inter-Company Challenge is made up of 10 tests each team will face along the way including a slow bike race, obstacle courses, king of the mountain and more with spot prizes available along the way.
Each person participating is asked to raise €500 of which €120 covers all of their food, accommodation and transport costs with the balance going to the Soul of Haiti Foundation.
