Take A Hike For Tinylife

The sky is the limit for footballing duo David Healy, the highest goal scorer for Northern Ireland and Caragh Milligan, the youngest ever footballer to represent Northern Ireland International team and it can be for you too if you join TinyLife, Northern Ireland's premature and sick baby charity for this year's Slieve Donard Challenge.


As a long standing patron of the charity, David is urging local people to sign up for this year's climb up the iconic Slieve Donard which is Northern Ireland's highest mountain, reaching a staggering 850 metres above sea level taking in some of the most spectacular views of our beautiful country.


The event which will take place on Saturday 27th August aims to raise much needed funds for TinyLife who offer a wide range of support services free of charge to the families of babies who are born prematurely or who spend time in neonatal care. TinyLife services include home based volunteer support, breast pump hire and baby massage to name but a few and are available right across the province.

Event organiser, Andrea Milligan said: "The Slieve Donard Challenge is an excellent event which appeals to so many participants for all sorts of reasons. Perhaps you would like to set yourself a personal challenge this year or maybe you are walking the route remembering the challenges your little one faced on their journey through neonatal.

"Whatever your reason, there is a real sense of achievement for one and all at the end of the challenge. TinyLife is already supporting an incredible number of families in Northern Ireland but signing up for events like the Slieve Donard Challenge ensures that we reach more families in their time of need."

If this sounds like the challenge you have been waiting for then do not hesitate, sign up today. TinyLife is offering two sign up options this year, either £40 registration fee with no sponsorship or £20 registration fee and £50 sponsorship.
