WELCOME TO CLIMB WITH CHARLIE
My motor neurone disease diagnosis was devastating but I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received from the general public, it’s been a huge source of strength for me and my family. I want to use the outpouring of support to help other people suffering with a terminal illness, and those suffering from thoughts of suicide and self-harm.
Join me in spirit on April 2nd as I raise funds for two charities very close to my heart – Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Pieta, Ireland’s national suicide prevention charity. My hope is that people all over Ireland, indeed all over the world will get behind me to show support and solidarity with the thousands of people who climb mountains every day due to their physical and mental health challenges.
I am encouraging anyone who wants to get involved in ‘Climb with Charlie’ to do so in their own area. Due to health and safety restrictions and an ongoing conservation project, we are restricted in the numbers who will climb Croagh Patrick on that day, BUT it would be amazing if you could walk or climb with me in spirit on April 2nd.
This act of solidarity will be so appreciated by me, my family and friends. To get behind me simply click on the ‘Create a Fundraiser’ button above or if you would like to donate to this campaign, just click on the donate button. Every contribution will really help and be reflected here.
Charlie, Claire and Tiger
