Virtual Croagh Patrick Climb 2020

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic we will not be able to host our annual Sunrise up Croagh Patrick challenge in Westport this year.  

 However, in its place we will have a Virtual Sunrise Up Croagh Patrick during the month of June. We are asking you to take on a different challenge to support our cause for 2020 in a way which complies with the current HSE/NHS (Covid-19) directions (see below*).

So, our challenge for 2020 asks you to Virtually Climb Croagh Patrick (27,000 steps or 20.5km) – once, twice or more ……how many Croagh Patricks can can you do?
During the month of June 2020 walk/run/dance/hula hoop or climb your stairs – building as many steps as you can whether it is in your home, garden or during your daily exercise outdoors (respecting the HSE/NHS directions*).   

Ask your friends, colleagues and family to sponsor you to Virtually Climb Croagh Patrick to raise much needed funds for our chosen Brain Condition (Neurological Disease) Charities:
o          Huntington's Disease Association of Ireland (CHY 10130)
o          Young Parkinson’s Ireland (CHY 10816)
o          The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association. (CHY 8510)

Help shine some light into the lives of those suffering by funding increased specialist care.

Most of us normally walk between 3,000 to 5,000 steps a day.

The HSE/NHS say we should try to reach the goal of 10,000, which is the recommended number of steps for health benefits.

Set your own goal........for whatever you feel is a good challenge for you but try to Virtually Climb Croagh Patrick (27,000 steps or 20.5km) – at least once between the 1st and 27th of June 2020. 

Ideally count your steps each day on your phone, fitness device or step counter (see examples below).
