Co-operation Ireland named charity partner for Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia.

Co-operation Ireland is honoured to be chosen as charity partner for the Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia Northern Ireland in 2016.   This unique partnership offers Co-operation Ireland supporters to get involved in, what is likely to be, the largest ever bike ride to take place in Northern Ireland.  The ride will be held on closed roads, similar to that which the professionals enjoyed in the Giro d’Italia which was held in Northern Ireland in 2014.

We are also working with the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce to encourage local businesses to enter a team and support this event.

Co-operation Ireland supporters can REGISTER HERE.  Please support us by selecting the Team Giro option on either the shorter Strangford Route or the more challenging Mourne Route. Enter as part of the Co-operation Ireland Team if you can’t meet the numbers to enter your own team. The Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia organisers have agreed that a portion of the Team Giro entry fee will go to Co-operation Ireland as the official charity for this event.

You can also download a sponsorship form and use this event to raise sponsorship for Co-operation Ireland.  As an incentive, anyone who raises a minimum of £30 for Co-operation Ireland will be entered into a Grand Draw to win a weekend in Rome for two along with a number of other great prizes.
