John Mc Guinness was on hand to launch the 10th Rev-up4DSI annual motorcycle challenge that takes place on the May bank holiday weekend (2nd-4th) and this year will see the event celebrate its tenth Birthday.
Founded by a pair of keen motorcyclists, both of whom have daughters born with Down Syndrome, Rev-up4DSI has raised in excess of €1.5million of much needed funds for Down Syndrome Ireland to date. The event is amystery tour with only the organisers knowing where the base for the weekend will beand indeed the route that will take the participants to it. This all adds to the craic and camaraderie on the road.
