Jigsaw and Killary Gaelforce join forces for 2019
January 25th 2019
We're delighted that Jigsaw will be the exclusive charity partner for all Killary Gaelforce events for 2019.
That means that every person who registers for a Killary Gaelforce event this year can choose to donate or fundraise for Jigsaw and help support the mental health of young people across Ireland.
There are 10 adventure challenges to choose from, with challenges ranging from a 10km trail run around Howth Summit to a 154km endurance challenge in the new Gaelforce West Ultra.
Bridget Gavin of Killary Gaelforce said, “Exercise plays a big role in our mental health and because of that we believe events, such as Gaelforce Dublin, have a really unique opportunity to support Jigsaw. What excites us most is that we truly believe in what Jigsaw are trying to do, and feel we can help them in achieving their vision of an Ireland where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported.”
The Gaelforce Dublin adventure race will take place on Saturday 23rd March 2019. The race incorporates running, cycling and kayaking. There are two distances to choose from – 49km and 29km. You can find out more or register to take part in Gaelforce Dublin on the Gaelforce website.
You can do a Gaelforce event for Jigsaw - and become a Jigsaw Hero - by setting up a Every Day Hero fundraising page and inspire your friends, family, colleagues or club mates to sponsor you online. To set your page up visit the Gaelforce Everyday Hero page.
