Get outside and raise some money for a good cause at the same time with one of these fun events.

The past year has been a tough time for charities across Ireland. While many are under more pressure than ever before due to the pandemic, all have had their fundraising abilities severely curtailed. The events that are usually held to raise essential funds have been forced online or cancelled altogether.

And although we still can’t gather in large numbers for these kind of events, there are lots of great challenges that charities are running in May to encourage us to get outside on our own, and raise money for a good cause while we’re at it.

‘Dip a Day in May’ for Galway Simon Community

Homelessness and housing charity Galway Simon Community has launched a challenge, asking people to take a ‘Dip a Day in May’ to raise funds. Participants can raise money by asking friends and family for sponsorship, and there is a Facebook group for those taking part. 

RNLI MayDay Walk

The RNLI’s Mayday Mile will take place virtually from May 1-16 2021, and participants can complete their walk at any time or place that suits them and share photos using the hashtag #MyMaydayMile. Anyone who raises £55/€55 or over will receive a special Mayday Mile medal. 

Make A Splash A Day In May for the Irish Cancer society

Another one for all the sea swimmers out there, the Irish Cancer society is asking people to jump, splash, swim or quickly dip into the water every day throughout the month to support cancer research. There is a Facebook group where you can register, and donations can also be collected through Facebook. 

Darkness Into Light with Pieta 

This much-loved event will be held on May 8. Although the usual gatherings can’t be held this year, people can still create their own sunrise moment, whether you choose to walk, run, cycle, or just get outside, raising funds for suicide prevention.

The May 50k for MS Ireland

MS Ireland are asking people to walk or run 50 kilometres over the month of May to raise money to help provide vital treatment and research. You can complete the challenge solo, or team up with friends, family or work colleagues.
