Are you brave enough to take on the ultimate 5 Peaks Challenge?
Special Olympics Connaught are now looking for participants to take on the challenge of climbing the five highest mountains in the province on May 12 & 13th in 36 hours; that's 10,500 ft of Benbulben, Nephin, Diamond Hill, Croagh Patrick and Truskmore. The event which runs in conjunction with award winning North West Adventure Tours has sold out every year since it began in 2014.
Helen Campbell of Special Olympics says “The event is one of the most popular events in our fundraising calendar because of the fun nature of the challenge involved. You will get to see views you wouldn’t normally experience and it’s with a great group of people who come together to raise money for a great cause. Participants of all fitness levels climb five mountains through spectacular scenery in Connaught while raising money for Special Olympics"
People who are interested can register on the Special Olympics website https://community.specialolympics.ie/mcf/5-peaks-challenge-signup and once you register, you will receive your fundraising pack which will include a list of fundraising event suggestions along with tips and hints on how to organise and promote your event, along with setting up a Fundraising Page.
Included in the cost is all transport and accommodation, food, professional guides taking the participants up each mountain, followed by a celebratory meal after the last challenge. This is a perfect way to do something fun while also helping to raise money for Special Olympics Connaught, who are based in Sligo.
