The Soar Foundation is a youth-based charity working with over 45,000 young people since its establishment in 2012.
We aim to prepare teenagers for life by running Early Intervention, Character Building workshops in both communities and schools all over Ireland.
Within these unique environments teenagers begin to grow Awareness of self, and the world around them, build Resilience and Coping Strategies, develop their Inner-Confidence and Self-Esteem, and emerge with a sense of Agency as they transition into early adulthood.
It is clear to see that teenagers need these environments now more than ever.
By the end of 2025, Soar will be reaching every Transition Year student in Ireland with our World Leading Early Intervention Character Building Program.

Thank you so much for signing up to the “170km My Way”, alternative Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, and for selecting Breakthrough Cancer Research as your chosen charity. Breakthrough Cancer Research is an Irish cancer charity, focused on research and education with a particular emphasis on cancers with a poor prognosis. 50 years ago, breast and prostate cancer survival rates were less than 50%. With research funding, they’re now over 85%. However, today some cancer survival rates are still less than 10%. That’s not a number we’re prepared to live with. With better treatments for all, we won’t have to.
Breakthrough facilitates excellence in research by bringing scientists and clinicians together to discover and develop new effective treatments for patients in Ireland, Europe and Internationally. By joining our team you’re helping our mission to make more survivors.
The funds raised from this year’s cycle will help to fund a very promising research programme in UCC to deepen understanding of the role bacteria are playing in cancer tumours, and to help make more personalised and effective treatments for patients. It is part of a wider national strategic research programme called Precision Oncology Ireland.
If you need any support in your fundraising, please contact Eoghan O’Sullivan, Campaigns Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +353 (21) 422 6655.

Our aim at CUH (Cork University Hospital) Charity is to provide a wide range of life-changing and life-saving equipment, facilities and services for patients in CUH & CUMH, covering a region of over 1.1 million people across Munster and beyond.
Major trauma involves complex injuries that have the potential to be life-changing or life-ending, amounting to around 1,600 patients in Ireland every year.
Cork University Hospital (CUH) is the only Level 1 Trauma centre in the country due to the presence of over 40 different medical and surgical specialities on the campus. Access is predominately through A&E.
All funds from the 170km My Way Alternative Ring of Kerry Cycle event will go towards the A&E department helping our mission of “Saving and Changing Lives”.
In April 2021, it was announced that CUH will be the only designated trauma centre outside of Dublin. It is believed this designation and necessary investment could reduce mortality rates from critical injury situations by as much as 30%.
Cork University Hospital’s Emergency Department (CUH ED) is now the busiest in the country seeing over 65,000 patients per year. These could be anything from being airlifted in following a road collision, an agricultural accident, a simple fall in the home for an older person, a marine incident, a broken bone for a child or a patient requiring a thrombectomy following a stroke (only available in CUH outside of Dublin and can reduce the death rate from stroke by half and almost doubles the rate of recovery to complete independent living).
We appreciate your support and together we can continue Saving and Changing Lives.
Thank you for meeting the challenge and becoming a lifesaver. Banna Rescue is an independent lifeboat service responding to 999 or 112 marine emergencies in the Tralee Bay area.
