Dermot & Dave, in an attempt to raise as much money as possible, have asked their listeners and members of the public to join them for the cycle which takes place of Tuesday the 26th of September. The lads will present their mid morning Today FM show live from Adare before taking to the saddle and pedalling to Cahir alongside their group of willing cyclists. To take part, Today FM are asking people to register for Dare to Care and raise a minimum of €250. To set up your fundraising page visit justigving.com/daretocare.
