Cycle Against Suicide announce partnership with Intersport Elverys
Intersport Elverys are pleased to announce our partnership with Cycle Against Suicide to help spread the message “It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help”.
Cycle Against Suicide beanie hats are now on sale in Intersport Elverys stores throughout the country. A portion of the proceeds from the sales will go to Cycle Against Suicide, to help promote its aim that “together, shoulder to shoulder, we can break the cycle of suicide on the island of Ireland.”
Over 800 people die by suicide in Ireland each year. That is 800 families and communities devastated; 800 lives cut short. Cycle Against Suicide aims to affect change by beginning a conversation about mental health in schools, businesses and communities throughout the island of Ireland.
The launch, which took place in Dundrum Town Centre on 17th November, saw Cycle Against Suicide Ambassadors; Ireland women’s rugby captain Niamh Briggs and former Dublin footballer, Jason Sherlock lend their support to the Cycle Against Suicide and Intersport Elverys partnership and beanie hat initiative.
Cycle Against Suicide founder Jim Breen said, ‘we are really excited to announce our partnership with Elverys Intersport. We are extremely grateful to them for their support and for helping us to spread the message of Cycle Against Suicide throughout the country.’
According to Intersport Elverys senior Marketing Manager Anne-Marie Hanly, “We are delighted to be in a position to support Cycle Against Suicide as they continue their great work. We have produced an exciting range of quality beanies, which carry the charity’s messages such as ‘it’s ok not to feel ok’. With €5 per item going to the organisation, together with our customers, we are helping them to reach out to some of the most vulnerable people across Ireland to combat suicide and promote better mental health.
