Sign up to run, cycle, climb or do anything you love!
You can #ChallengeYourself to do anything you love in aid of us. See below for a list of upcoming events you can sign up to do for the Irish Guide Dogs. You can also organise your own challenge!
What is #ChallengeYourself for the Irish Guide Dogs?
#ChallengeYourself is our national campaign encouraging everyone to get involved in some form of challenge in order to raise money to support our services. This can range from a sponsored walk to an ultra-marathon and everything in between!
Who can take part in a challenge yourself event?
Everyone, if you think you can take part in any event or even part of an event we would love to hear from you.
How fit should I be?
Depending on the event you are signing up for different physical challenges may arise. But we don’t require you to run a kilometre in 15 minutes or anything like that. If you are happy to challenge yourself to take part in an event then we are more than happy to support you in any way we can.
How much does it cost to take part in #ChallengeYourself events.
We do not charge for our #ChallengeYourself fundraising packs, once you have registered to run in an event contact us at: email@example.com or 1850 506 300 and we will arrange to send a pack to you.
How much sponsorship do I have to raise?
We do not set minimum sponsorship targets, all money raised is greatly appreciated.
How will I raise the sponsorship money?
Each fundraising pack will contain a sponsorship card which will allow you to gather and record donations from family, friends and colleagues.
How do I set up my own online fundraising page?
To Be Confirmed
How do I get more sponsorship cards?
Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 1850 506 300 to request an additional card.
When do I have to submit my sponsorship money?
We ask that you submit any money raised in the two weeks following the event. We realise that this is not always possible but it’s a nice deadline to push for to help gather all the money you have raised.
How do I send you the money I have raised?
You can send the monies raised to Irish Guide Dogs along with your sponsorship card. Our address, contact and bank details will included in each fundraising pack.
If you have decided to create a online fundraising web page, all your sponsorship money from this page will automatically be sent directly to our bank account. Details on how to set this up will also be in your fundraising pack for easy reference.
