Cycle Against Suicide Campaign

On Thursday 25th April, 2013 the K.C.C. cycling team returned back to Killarney after cycling from Cork City as part of the Cycle Against Suicide Campaign. It was a fantastic achievement.

Cycle against Suicide

This cycle is a national event starting in Dublin on the 22nd of April and ending in Dublin the 5th of May with 14 different stages around Ireland. Students and teachers from Killarney Community College are taking part in the 4th stage of the “Cycle against Suicide” on the 25th of April from Cork City to Killarney a distance of about 100 km. They are doing it to raise awareness because everyone has some connection with suicide, self harm or depression. The staff and students at KCC believe that by cycling, together, around Ireland that this powerful message will be delivered.. they believe that the best way to help fight the Battle Against Suicide in Ireland is to do it together.

Our Mental Health is just like our physical health – it is something we have to be mindful of – and from time to time we have to ask for help – and that is OK.
