Equinox Cycle Goes Virtual! #InternationalDayOfCharity

Looking for a GREAT way to celebrate the 8th annual International Day of Charity? Why not sign up for this year's Equinox Charity Cycle!

Our Dublin studio has participated in the highly anticipated Equinox Cycle fundraiser each year since its inception. And each year it's been a fantastically rewarding challenge for all involved, typically seeing a bunch of our Brown Baggers dust off their lycra and oil up their chains, to cycle a whopping 230km from the East to West coast of Ireland in ONE day! Putting the pedal to the metal and raising funds in aid of Temple Street Children's Hospital and Headway, two local Dublin charities close to our hearts.

This year, Covid-19 has meant taking a new approach for the annual event. While a physical coast to coast Equinox cycle was not possible, the tenth event is going ahead in a different way - with an even bigger challenge!

Around The World in One Day: Cycle, Run, Walk, Row, Swim or Hike (or whatever your sport is) to help Temple Street, CHI Crumlin and Headway

We want you to help us go around the world on Saturday 19th September to raise funds for Temple Street Children’s Hospital, CHI Crumlin and Headway. We want as many people as possible to cycle, run, jog, walk or do whatever they can to help us cover 40,075km in one day - and raise one euro for every kilometre clocked up. Every kilometre counts, so stay tuned on social media for regular updates!

Both Temple Street Foundation and Headway Ireland, our chosen benefactors over the last 10 years, have seen their fundraising decimated due to Covid-19. With big fundraising events like marathons cancelled, we want to help fill the hole in much needed funds to help buy vital equipment for Temple Street Children's Hospital and help provide mental health services for people who have suffered brain injuries. This edition of the Equinox cycle is unique. We won’t be travelling beside each other but we will be together.

—Equinox Cycle

The Equinox Charity Cycle has raised over €200,000 over the last 9 years for both Temple Street Children's Hospital and Headway. This year they are including Children’s Health Foundation Crumlin. On September 19th, you can help Equinox Cycle go virtually around the Earth in one day - that’s 40,075km! With 100% of donations going directly to the charities.
