Slieve Donard Challenge

Slieve Donard Challenge

Join us on Saturday 10th September 2022 as we climb 850m up Northern Ireland’s highest peak, Slieve Donard, to raise funds to support local families affected by cancer.

It is set to be a fantastic day and we really hope lots of people sign-up and join us as we take on the climb to the summit, where on a clear day you can see as far as the Isle of Man and Scotland.  This will be a great personal challenge and it will give people a real sense of achievement when they reach the top of Slieve Donard.  Each step will raise money which will help support thousands of people across Northern Ireland who have been affected by cancer.

We are so pleased that Warmflow Home Heating Solutions have sponsored the event again this year, as it means that all of the money raised will go directly to supporting local families.


Final Instructions: 


On the day, Friends of the Cancer Centre registration point will be located at the far end of the Donard car park and will be open from 9.00am and close at 10.00am. There will be a banner signposting you to the registration point.

When you arrive, please visit Friends of the Cancer Centre’s gazebo to check in with our staff. Here we will check that we have your completed medical form, mobile phone number for the day and will mark you as attending.

After this, you will be passed onto our event provider, Bryson Energy. They will check you have the right footwear etc before you set off on your challenge. 

This challenge is only open to people who have registered, paid their registration fee and are raising money for the charity. 

Anyone who has not done this will not be allowed to take part, as they will not be covered under our insurance. 

Please note that dogs are not permitted on this challenge, this is for your own health and safety.


Sponsorship money

If you have been fundraising on Just Giving or Facebook, this money will be sent directly to the charity. If you have cash donations, we would be really grateful if you could lodge your sponsorship money directly to the charity’s bank account, if you need these details let me know.


Equipment & Clothing

Please come prepared for the challenge eg waterproofs, appropriate walking shoes/boots, and sun cream as you never know the weather will be like in Northern Ireland. 

If you have not done so already, please forward the medical form to me as soon as possible.   

A complimentary goodie bag containing a packet of crisps, a piece of fruit and a bottle of water will be offered to all participants at registration.  Please ensure to take all rubbish with you, and dispose of it carefully.
