Get Breathless for COPD Charity Cycle – Galway to Dublin 10th and 11th June 2-16

COPD Ireland is happy to announce our support for the A. Menarini ‘Get breathless for COPD’ charity cycle, a one-of-a-kind event which will see participants cycle from Galway to Dublin over a unique and scenic route on the 10th and 11th of June 2016.

Supported by a professional crew of guides and support vehicles, the cycle will take place over two stages and includes an overnight stay in the Radisson Blu, Athlone.
