It's not your average cycle, as Timmy, along with four of his friends, David McLaughlin, Gearoid Lyons, Richie McManus and Ruairi Hession are all currently cycling across the USA from coast to coast in aid of Jigsaw - The National Centre for Youth Mental Health in Ireland. They were inspired by the work Jigsaw do for young people in Ireland and wanted to support them by raising money through this adventure. 

The started their journey from Boston at the start of June and they are now almost a month into the cycle and are over 1,000km into their challenge. They have already passed Chicago and are currently in Iowa.

They have currently raised over €3,000 in aid of Jigsaw and are hoping to raise €5,000 by the time they reach the West coast, after about 5,000km.

You can follow their journey on their Instagram @usacoasttocoastjigsaw or you can donate and support their cause here

Timmy has played a huge part in our recent success, playing a key role in last seasons First Division title winning team, along with being a key player for our College's and University teams over the last number of years. Everyone at UCD would like to wish them the very best of luck with the remainder of the cycle and we will be sure to keep a close eye on their progress over the coming weeks!
