Entering its 22nd year, Tour de Munster has raised over €3.9 million for its beneficiaries, with over €3.5 million for DSI alone since it became the main beneficiary of the tour in 2010.
Funds raised support the six Munster branches of DSI, contributing to essential services such as Speech and Language Therapy.
Down Syndrome Ireland has 25 branches nationwide.
These branches are run almost exclusively by volunteer parents and provide children and adults with Down syndrome and their families with a wide range of vital services and social opportunities.
Last year was certainly a year to remember for Tour de Munster, as it raised its largest sum to date for the Munster branches of Down Syndrome Ireland - a staggering €522,201.
Since 2001, Tour de Munster has raised over €3.5 million for DSI alone since it became the main beneficiary of the tour in 2010.
Tour de Munster was established by Paul Sheridan and since 2001 has become an event that the Munster branches of DSI look forward to.
This will be the 13th successive year that the national charity has been the beneficiary of the popular cycle around the six counties of Munster, which this year is set to take place from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th of August.
