Mizen To Malin 2011
As you may be aware, CIT organized a very successful charity run in June 2009 where the college raised in raised in excess of 20,900 euro for Multiple Sclerosis Ireland (Cork branch). It has been decided to run a similar event in June 2011, where we are organizing a charity drive using vintage and classic vehicles of yesteryear owned by staff members, students and some friends.
This run will take place from the 10th to 12th of June (after exams and before the results) from Mizen Head to Malin Head - total distance approx. 375 miles. We are hoping to raise funds by getting sponsorship from staff and students within the college and also friends outside the college, possibly having a fund raiser as well for this very worthy cause. There will be no deductions for expenses for this event as all costs for this trip will be covered by the people involved in the event.
All monies collected will be presented to Suicide Aware, a Cork based voluntary organization set up to help deal with the issues of depression and suicide in Ireland.
The main aim of this charity is to
* To promote awareness and prevention of suicide, by identifying the needs of people suffering from depression and suicide related issues, setting up educational programmes and activities for the purpose of creating public awareness & understanding mental health, depression and suicide.
* To set up Counseling services with seven day, twenty four hour accessibility where and when required.
* To set up relevant community centers which are identifiable in local areas, to act as facilitator centers for anyone in crisis. To develop a Suicide Support and Information Service.

We have a number of cars and bikes plus support vehicles to do this charity run, most of them owned by staff/student members. If there are any other staff or student members interested in getting involved please let us know as we would be delighted to hear from you.
This event was formally launched on Wednesday 6th April by members of the Munster Rugby Team.
