Dublin CARI Way To Go Hill Walk


 The Dublin ‘Way To Go’ Hill Walk is a charity walking event in aid of CARI. The walk takes place on September 27th through the Dublin Mountains Way and is kindly supported by the Dublin Mountains Partnership. Participants can choose the ‘Short Walk’ from Shankill to Johnnie Fox’s (3 hours) or the ‘Long Walk’ from Tallaght to Johnnie Fox’s (7 hours). The route passes through a variety of terrain from urban parks to forest to open mountainside and is on a mixture of roads and forest and mountain tracks and trails.
All funds raised from the event will help children and families affected by child sexual abuse. By taking part you will make a positive difference in the life of a vulnerable child! We look forward to meeting you all on the day!
