FORMER Kerry football stars Aidan O’Mahony and Jimmy Deenihan are lending their support to an event on August 20 to support Irish humanitarian aid organisation, GOAL, and their Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

GOAL’s Pedal West for Ukraine challenge aims to help raise life-saving funds for people impacted by the conflict, which is in its fourth month.

The 75 kilometre challenge begins at Ballyseedy Home & Garden Centre in Tralee, who are also partnering with GOAL on the event, before going through Camp and Annascaul on the Dingle Peninsula. The route continues to Inch Beach and Castlemaine, before finishing off at Ballyseedy Home & Garden centre.

GOAL Board member, former TD, Jimmy Deenihan, is looking forward to the event. “We are delighted to welcome as many cyclists as possible and their families to this beautiful part of the country on what is a breath-taking route. While the cycle will be a lot of fun, it is to support the most urgent of humanitarian crises in Ukraine, where millions of people have been impacted by this tragic war. We encourage people to get involved and support people in this time of need.”

Speaking about the event Managing Director of Ballyseedy Home & Garden, Nathan McDonnell said: “We are gearing up to a brilliant event for an excellent cause & thankfully we’re in a position to help. A little support can go a long way and it’s so important that we stand in solidarity with our Ukrainian friends. We encourage all ages to get behind this fundraiser in any way they can, during this difficult time for Ukraine”.
