Share this article

Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children is challenging East Antrim residents to climb the stunning Slieve Donard Mountain, Northern Ireland’s highest peak, to raise money for local children and young people living with cancer.

The walk is approximately 5.5 miles, climbing to a height of 2550ft, and on a clear day you will take in breathtaking views as far afield as Scrabo Tower, the Wicklow Hills, Isle of Man and even Scotland.

Starting at 9am from Donard Car Park, the walkers will head towards Commedagh Mountain, then along the Mourne Wall to achieve the ultimate goal of reaching the summit of Slieve Donard. Afterwards, participants can celebrate their achievement with a barbeque and everyone will receive a personalised certificate of appreciation.

Registration for this event is £20 per person, and the charity is asking participants to raise a minimum sponsorship of £80.
