TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Mia Keaveney is going to try out her new prosthetic leg by taking part in the cycle at this year’s Tour De Picnic (TDP).

Mia, founder of ‘Thank You Crumlin, Love Mia’, which is also a TDP beneficiary, helped launch this year’s event at an unveiling of the a multi-sensory garden at LauraLynn House, which was built as a result of the fundraising efforts from last year’s Tour De Picnic.

The race is no longer on two wheels, so if you find the 80km cycle a bit daunting, a 10km charity run to the music festical at Electic Picnic as also been added.

There were over 700 participants at the festival bike ride last year, but organisers hope this year will be even bigger.

“We hope everybody going to Electric Picnic 2013 will consider partaking in either the new 10km run or the 80km cycle,” said Jane McKenna, founder of LauraLynn Children’s Hospice, which recieved €54,000 from the event last year.

Tour De Picnic is now officially open for anyone to register.
