Fwd: Race the Rás charity cycle

A Chara
** **
We do some work with the GAA and have been asked by Paul Earley and Declan Darcy to help out with the publicity for the charity cycle Race the R*á*s.** **
** **
Our primary objective is to create as much awareness as possible for the cycle and I am asking you for your help as we endeavour to deliver on our promise.****
** **
Race the R*á*s started last year and thus needs promotion so that as many people take part and donate as possible. The GAA stars confirmed to take part in this year’s race are Sean Og Ó hÁilpín, Dan Shanahan, Declan Darcy, Paul Earley, Ciaran Whelan, Eddie Brennan and with more being confirmed.****
** **
Please find below an advertisement for the cycle which starts next month. We would be grateful if you could use this on your website or even in a match programme. If you feel that any other methods are appropriate please let me know.****
** **
We really need all the help we can get on this and if everyone does their bit for charity then we can be confident that even more will be raised than last year.****
** **
We want to help the team raise as much money for Breast Cancer Research and Aware and placing the advert below on your website or in match programmes would be a great help. ****
** **
Thanks in advance,****
