PG100

The committee of The Friends of Portglenone GAC are organising one major fundraiser in 2024 – a cycling event called ‘PG100’. This event will help the club grow and develop and will also act as major charity fundraiser.

On 22nd September 2024 it is our intention to have upwards of 200 cyclists completing either a minor route of 50km/30miles or an advanced route of 100km/60miles. This challenging and inclusive one day cycle event will leave Roger Casements GAC, Gortgole Road Portglenone on Sunday 22nd September using 2 cycle routes and returning to Portglenone for a celebration and dance.

In addition to the cycle, we will also host a 5km walk/run, 10km run and a Mini PG100 for the children to ensure we can have as many of the local community participate as possible

One of the major goals of the cycle is to raise funds for 5 charities that have been chosen by our local community. These charities are:

  • Motor Neurone Disease Association
  • MacMillan Cancer Support
  • The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust (KBRT)
  • Air Ambulance Northern Ireland
  • Community Rescue Service Portglenone

Following the cycle the club will be making a sizeable donation split between the 5 local charities. We would be delighted if you could help us build our future and help us support these very worthwhile charities.

Our main sponsors for the event are Premier Electrics, Fullans Food Hall Portglenone and C Doherty & Co Accountants. We would like to thank them for their support to the club and agreeing to be our main sponsors for this event.

As part of ‘PG100’ we are designing and producing a one-off commemorative cycling jersey for all participants. We require all cyclists to pay £50 on registration with the minimum balance of £150 donation to be paid prior to the event date. All registered participants will be invited to an induction evening and will also receive a commemorative cycle jersey and entrance to celebration event.

You can use the DONATION PAGE online to send the remaining minimum payment of £150 or give it to any of the following committee members Ciaran Doherty, Catherine Doherty or Elaine McAleese who can process your donation offline.

Registration for the 5km walk/run, 10km run and a Mini PG100 is FREE, once registered we will provide you with a sponsorship card and the DONATION PAGE is also available for collecting online Sponsorship ahead of the event.

If you have further queries, please do not hesitate to contact Ciaran.doherty@cdohertyaccountants.com or 07980962062.
