Croagh Park Santa Climb!
One of the organisers friends has two kids who have Cystic Fibrosis, one of which was a lucky beneficiary of an amazing dream day last year, courtesy of the Bubblegum Club.
So long story short they want to give something back, and are organising an event on the 21st of November, which involves getting 100 people to climb Croagh Patrick in a Santa suit (minimum a hat). Each person must raise €250 minimum.
Mayo Mountain Rescue will be present on the day, as they are a voluntary organisation we will be also donating to them.
The plan is to give 25% to Mayo Mountain Rescue and the rest to be split between CF and Bubblegum.
I have attached a proof of our poster, also I will forward you two other attachments, detailing the actual requirements for the day, safety etc
I have been in touch with Ruth Cunniffe in Mayo Mountain Rescue and Nuala McAuley in CF Ireland, all are on board with what we are doing.
We have completed and submitted the relevant form to the gardai.
A central bank account for the fundraiser will be set up with AIB, all 'Santas' will lodge their sponsorship into this account. There will also be an online sponsorship option available via ifundraise and all funds from ifundraise.ie will be be transferred into this central account.
Once the event is over the named charities will receive the cheques.
If you know anybody that would like to take part and be a Santa, please feel free to contact Margaret at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
