You Can Do It

Slieve Donard Cancer Fund for Children


Taking place on the Bank Holiday Weekend in May, this is the perfect opportunity for you to experience Northern Ireland’s most famous mountain in all its glory.

Setting off from Donard Car Park at 9.30am, you will walk for approximately 5.8 miles in total, climbing to 2,550ft and taking in the spectacular Mourne views around you. On a clear day, you will see as far as Scrabo Tower, the Wicklow Mountains and Isle of Man!


Making A Difference


Every mile you conquer will make a huge difference to local families whose lives have been devastated by a cancer diagnosis.

By getting sponsored, you’ll be enabling our team of Specialists to be there for families so they don’t have to face cancer alone.

Funds raised will help provide a range of practical, emotional and financial support to families as well as free therapeutic short breaks at Daisy Lodge, nestled just at the foot of the Mourne Mountains. These short breaks provide families with a place where they can spend quality time together away from the stresses of hospital visits and cancer treatment.
