Now in its third year, the Pieta 100 will take place in 6 locations across Ireland on September 10th, which is World Suicide Prevention Day.
The cycle is in Support of Pieta House and suicide awareness. Pieta House provides a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm.
Pieta House opened its doors a decade ago with Lucan in County Dublin the centre of operations. In the intervening years, they have seen and helped over 20,000 people in suicidal distress or engaging in self-harm, and established eight subsequent centres, three in the greater Dublin area – Ballyfermot, Tallaght and Finglas and five further centres to cater for the rest of the country in Limerick, Cork, Tipperary, Galway and Kerry.
Since 2015, over 2800 participants have saddled up to take on the Pieta 100 Cycle challenge, riding 50 or 100km to help raise vital funds for the life-saving services of Pieta House. This year, the event takes place on World Suicide Prevention Day, and every kilometre cycled will be added to the IASP’s Cycle Around The Globe.
The six locations where the cycle will take place are:
