The 54321 Challenge is all set for Year Number 8 in 2020 .. with a difference! "Back to simplicity in complicated times"

The 54321 Challenge is all set for Year Number 8.. with a difference!
“Back to simplicity in complicated times”

A team of 5 People over 4 Days doing 3 Cycles and 2 Mountains for 1 Cause

The 54321 Challenge was originally started 8 years ago with a team of 5 People over 4 DAYS, completing 3 CYCLES, and climbing 2 MOUNTAINS for 1 Cause – a local charity.    

The Challenge has grown in numbers over the years, and this year was to be no different with a large number of participants ready to undertake the challenge. However due to the current COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and the corresponding lockdown, and health & safety recommendations from the HSA around large groups of people, the 54321 Challenge committee made the tough decision that all 50 participants could not complete this years Challenge. The 54321 Challenges top priority is to ensure the safety of its participants and in the current climate, this extends to their families, neighbours, friends etc.  . Instead the decision has been made that the Challenge will revert to the original 5 participants undertaking the 4 day challenge, and this will take place from Thursday 20th to Sunday 23rd of August 2019 inclusive. This will include the following.

We are currently looking at ways other people can participate in an online version of the Challenge while representing and raising funds for their chosen charity, and we will be announcing details in the coming weeks.

This year’s selected charities are The Kerry Hospice, Skellig Stars (Group of children and adult athletes with special needs) and Enable Ireland Kerry and each charity will have a champion undertaking the challenge on their behalf.

Kerry Hospice Foundation - a voluntary organisation that provides funding & support for Palliative Care Services in Kerry
Skellig Stars - a Voluntary Athletics Club based in Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry, that train 23 athletes; adults and children of all ages that have an intellectual disability
Enable Ireland Kerry - Disability Services

Last year the challenge raised a massive €72,506  for the Kerry Hospice Foundation, The Skellig Stars (children and adult athletes with special needs) and Dingle Coast and Cliff Rescue Service, and in the 7 years of running we have raised €206,712 to date for various Kerry charities.

Thanks to everyone who made Saturday's Spinathon in Tralee another successful fundraiser event for our 3 chosen charities. A great turnout from volunteers at our 3 venues, and thanks to all the members of the public who gave their support and generous donations on the day, allowed us to collect an amazing €5558!

If you missed out on meeting our volunteers and would like to give a donation still to the 54321 Challenge and our 3 chosen charities this year (@Enable Ireland Kerry, Skellig Stars and the Kerry Hospice Foundation), you can do so online at www.54321challenge.org/make-a-donation.

Please spread the word and share our posts or make a donation, whether big or small, to help us raise much needed funds for our 3 chosen charities. They really need help this year with their fundraising due to the limitations imposed due to Covid-19.
