Two Peaks, Two Days, The Weekend of your Life!
Praxis Care is running a Two Peaks Walk Challenge on 25th and 26th August 2012.
40 Volunteers have already agreed to climb the twin peaks of Carrantuohill (Co Kerry) and Slieve Donard (Co Down) over the course of the weekend.
Individuals need to raise £495 and this covers the cost of transport, food and accommodation for the weekend.
In preparation for the walk there will be a training walk on Sunday 10th June 2012.
Walkers will meet at the Four Seasons Hotel in Carlingford at 9 am and enjoy a hearty cooked breakfast before heading off on a walk.
Paul Collins Assistant Director Fundraising & Communications Praxis Care says
” The training walk is a great opportunity to prepare for the main trek in August as well as meet some of your fellow walkers.
Even if you have not commited to taking part in the trek it is an chance to come a long and support the work of Praxis Care
The Praxis Care Twin Peaks Walk Challenge is a great opportunity for individuals to visit and climb two of the highest mountains in Ireland and raise much needed funds for Praxis Care.
There has been a tremendous response with 40 volunteers signed up to take part in the Challenge.
