Ronan has gathered together a collection of signed rugby jerseys from the likes of England, Munster, Leinster, Ulster, Ospreys, London Irish and Bristol to use as prizes for those who sponsor and predict his finishing time.

Ronan's aim is to raise money towards Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). "I chose CRY because of John - they care for people my age who might have cardiac issues. I've played hurling, rugby and football so I've mainly been involved with team sports more than individual"

To sponsor this highly admirable cause, please contact Ronan at www.virginmoneygiving.com and click on Ronan O'Byrne, or else phone 0044 7490 129976.
