By Martin Fenton - Treasurer, Karen Fenton Ovarian Cancer Fund
Martin completed the Karen Fenton cycle challenge from Cork (Karen's home) to Dublin (Howth Road, where Karen lived before taking ill) on August 26th, 2020. Karen was due to turn 47 on August 27th so would have been an apt date for the cycle. However, it was brought forward by a day given poor weather forecast on Thursday 27th.
This was a tough 278km cycle, time on the bike was 10hrs 40minutes. It was an early start for Martin setting out before 6.30am with arrival on Howth Road in Dublin at 7.50pm.
It was a significant challenge but all worth it as we continue to raise funds for a state of the art cancer sequencing machine for CUH that will be purchased in Karen's name and will leave lasting legacy for cancer patients in Cork and wider Munster region.
The cycle challenged raised €5119.49 (including donations separate to GlobalGiving) whihc has been put towards the purchase of a vital cancer sequencing machine for CUH in Cork.
