THE CROAGH PATRICK CHALLENGE | CLIMB FOR AUTISM 2013
Welcome to our new website, CLIMB FOR AUTISM (formerly Croagh Patrick Challenge).
********** Registration Now Closed ***********
We are a group based in Mayo, who got together to raise funds for children with Autism. Every year we organise an event which is a weeklong and involves the climbing of Mayo’s most famous mountain, Croagh Patrick. We appeal to all who would consider giving of their time and energy in raising funds and partaking in a climb or several climbs of the mountain. In this there is a challenge, to scale the mountain for 7 days. This is totally optional to the climber. Many people take on the challenge for the full 7 days and many others support us by climbing one or more days.
YOU CAN CLIMB FOR 1 DAY ,OR 2 DAYS OR TRY THE 7 DAY CHALLENGE ITS UP TO YOU.
This year, this will be our 7th annual climb, and we are gratefully appreciative of every climber, participant, supporter, crew, sponsor, media and the general public, who have given their time and hard work to make this event possible each year.
Mayo Autism Action is our main focus. However, because of the popularity of this event, we also work closely with Irish Autism Action to facilitate families of children with Autism in other Counties from funds raised by the event.
“Whats raised in a county – stays in that County”.
To date we have raised over €580,000.
