Are you ready to take on Northern Ireland's highest peak on Sunday 29th May 2022 in aid of Cancer Fund for Children to support local families impacted by cancer?

When: Sunday 29th May 2022
Where: Registration at 9am at Shimna Integrated College, Newcastle, County Down
Cost: Registration £30pp | Sponsorship: £100pp

Join us this May for our annual Climb Slieve Donard challenge! Not only are we welcoming it back after a 2 year delay due to covid, but we want you to help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of our amazing walk.

Every month another 30 families across Ireland are told the devastating news that their child has cancer. Childhood cancer is a life changing and challenging experience and places extreme pressures on the whole family.

Every mile you conquer and every pound you raise will make sure we can be there to help families during one of the most difficult times in their lives and we can continue providing them with a safe and supportive environment at Daisy Lodge - our therapeutic short break centre in Newcastle, County Down.

Setting off from our registration point at Shimna Integrated College at 9.45am (registration opens at 9am) you will walk for approximately 5.8 miles in total, climbing to 2,550ft, and taking in the spectacular Mourne views around you. On a clear day, you will see as far as Scrabo Tower, the Wicklow Mountains, and Isle of Man!

So, what are you waiting for?! Those boots were made for walking, so it's time to put your best foot forward and help us ensure no child has to face cancer alone.

Anyone 12 years and older is welcome to sign up, and all under 18's must be accompanied by an adult. This challenge is classified as medium and does require a base level of fitness to take part and find it enjoyable.
