Employees from Kirbys Galway office took part in Westport Sea2Summit recently as part of a fundraising initiative which saw them raise 16,000 for charity. The money raised will be divided equally among two very worthy charities: Irish Kidney Association and Irish Cancer Society.
30 employees took part in the gruelling Westport Sea2Summit challenge; a 30km adventure race which included a 4km run followed by an 8km cycle, 3km mountain run on Croagh Patrick, 11km cycle and a final 4km run.
Mikey Ryan, Associate Director at Kirby, organised the companys participation in the event and presented the donations to the Irish Kidney Association and the Irish Cancer Society on behalf of Kirby.
Supporting the communities in which it operates is very important to Kirby. Every year, the company supports a significant number of charities and community initiatives. Last year, Kirby supported over 40 national and international charities.
