Solas Project supports children and young people at risk of being marginalised by society, specifically through the education, employment and justice systems.
Rainbows Ireland provides an inclusive voluntary service that supports children experiencing grief and loss as a result of bereavement, parental separation, parental relationship breakdown and divorce.
Writing on the fundraising page, KOD Lyons said: “We believe that the rights of children and young people are binary, where one child is hurt, all children are hurt.
“Charities like Solas Project and Rainbows Ireland play an integral role in the vindication of the rights of children and young people in Ireland and it is imperative that they receive the resources they need to continue their work.
“The money raised by our coast-to-coast cycle will go towards reducing the societal harm of children living in Ireland through educational, mentoring, employment and support programmes run by Solas Project and Rainbows Ireland.”
