Praxis Care is running a Ben Nevis Walk Challenge on 23rd and 24th August 2014.
Volunteers are being asked to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland – the highest mountain in the UK over the weekend.
Individuals need to raise £549 / €658 and this covers the cost of transport, food and accommodation for two days.
Praxis Care is a leading charity providing care and support for adults and children with learning disabilities, mental ill health and acquired brain injury.
Paul Collins, Assistant Director Fundraising & PR, Praxis Care says:
“The Praxis Care Ben Nevis Walk Challenge is a great opportunity for individuals to visit and climb the highest mountain in UK and raise much needed funds for Praxis Care.
All monies raised from the event will go towards supporting Praxis Care’s fantastic work in Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man and England for vulnerable adults and children.
In the last three years over 50 people have taken part in Praxis Care walk challenges and we already have 12 people signed up for the Ben Nevis Walk Challenge.
Praxis Care walks are a great way to visit and climb mountains throughout Ireland and UK in a well organised weekend with professional walk leaders.
In addition, you get a chance to meet walkers from all ages and backgrounds as well as raise much needed funds for Praxis Care.”
