Team Work Makes the Dream Work! 

Our story so far!

In early 2022, I set myself a challenge to increase my fitness and raise funds for Ashes to Gold. I wanted to push myself by trekking the highest peaks in Ireland. My team at ATG were keen to join in and challenge themselves for a great cause too! 

Along with our partners (and dogs!) we met monthly at 7am on Sunday mornings to walk together.  

Our journey to fitness included treks in:

  • Caranmore
  • The Glens of Antrim 
  • Mount Errigal
  • Mountains of Mourne
  • The Sperrin’s 
  • Donegal
  • Causeway Coast - Ballintoy to Portballintrae

Our final challenge will be the ascent of Carrauntoohil in Kilarney on Saturday 20th August. I would really appreciate your sponsorship. 

Thanks for your donation.
