Emlyn's 30 Day Knocknarea Challenge

Donation protected
Hi folks,

My name is Emlyn Mulligan and I am a Garda based in Boyle Co. Roscommon.

Starting on Sunday 1st November 2020 I am attempting to climb Knocknarea Mountain in Sligo every day for the 30 days of November.

All money raised will go towards the Sligo Cancer Support Centre  and Little Blue Heroes  charities - two charities that are close to my heart and unfortunately in current COVID circumstances are in great need of financial support.

I will be posting a live video every day via Facebook/Twitter as I reach the summit of the 375-metre high picturesque mountain and 6KM round hike.

Knocknarea Mountain is within 5km of my home, so all Level 5 government guidelines will be adhered to.

Any donation you can make towards this fundraising challenge would be greatly appreciated by myself and both charities. 

Thanks so much in advance for all your support.

(let’s hope the weather stays on my side and I didn’t bite off more than I can chew!)


A bit about the charities I am fundraising for:

Sligo Cancer Support Centre  is a place of peace and hope where people with cancer and their families can access support, counselling, holistic therapies and healing workshops in a caring and tranquil environment in the North West of Ireland. A place where no one feels alone on their journey to recovery.

This centre could not survive without the hard work and dedication of all its volunteers, who serve on the Board of Directors, help with fundraising events, and work in the centre as meet and greet volunteers.

Little Blue Heroes Foundation  is a not-for-profit charity operated entirely by volunteers (no paid staff) made up of Garda members/staff, retired Garda members, their families, friends and civic minded people from communities. It aims to help families in need from local communities in Ireland who have children undergoing long-term medical treatment for serious illness.

The name ‘Little Blue Heroes’ came about when they found that the vast amount of the children they support have a strong fascination with police uniform, equipment, vehicles, Garda units, etc.. This has even led some of the children to make a wish to become an Honorary Garda and become part of the Garda family.
