Climb to Paradise with the Clionas Foundation Walking Challenge

Are you ready to participate in an exciting healthy challenge and also raise much-needed funds for the families of children with a life-limiting condition?

The Clionas Foundation Walking challenge will take place on Saturday 6th October and the Foundation is looking for people to walk with them and raise money to help support families with the non- medical costs of caring for their child.

This year’s walking challenge is the Paradise Hill Loop with a trip up to “The Pinnacle“.The Paradise Hill Loop is on the western end of the Galtymore Mountains in Co. Limerick and there are spectacular views of the Golden Vale and the Glen of Aherlow along the route. The walk which reaches a high point of 700m will take approximately 3-4 hours and requires a good level of fitness.  

The walk will commence from and return to the Community Centre in Anglesborough Co. Limerick which is 50km from Limerick city. There is ample parking at the Community centre and the group will gather there from 9 am for a walk start time of 9.30am.

 “This is our 2nd year organising a walking challenge and our trek up Galtymore last year was a fantastic day out, “said Brendan Ring, Co-Founder of Cliona’s Foundation. “We are hoping that some of the many that walk and climb every weekend either individually or as part of the walking club /work group will lend their support and are looking for people to raise monies through sponsorship or a minimum donation of €50. We currently have 23 families on our waiting list that need support and all the monies raised will go directly to some of these families.

“We are also this year delighted to have the support of the Anglesborough Community Council, Gallahues Bar & Restaurant of Ballylanders and Supermac’s SuperSubs who  are ensuring that we will be well looked after with refreshments after the climb and we really appreciate their support,” said Brendan

 Cliona’s Foundation is the only Irish charity providing financial support to the families of children with a life-limiting condition all over the country from birth up to the age of 16 years of age to help with the nonmedical costs of caring for their child. These costs can include accommodation, car parking, travel, child-care, and specialist equipment.  They have supported over 530 families over the past 11 years.   

The Foundation receives no state funding so events like this are critical to enable the Foundation to continue to support those in need.

Pre-registration is required so if you want to sign up for this challenge please contact [email protected] or call 061 – 331333
