Tipperary Ladies Football Association is climbing Slievenamon on St. Stephen’s Day as a fundraiser for CLIMB4CLARE. CLIMB4CLARE is a fundraising campaign organised by the Ladies Gaelic Football Association to raise much needed funding to ensure the provision and roll out of the CLIMB® Support Programme in Cancer Care Centres around the country in partnership with The Irish Cancer Society. CLIMB® stands for Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery and is a programme for children aged 5-12 who are experiencing the impact of a parent’s, other significant adult’s or a brother or sister’s cancer diagnosis.
County Tipperary Ladies Football Teams and clubs will be participating in the climb on Slievenamon and all monies raised will go directly to CLIMB4CLARE. Anyone who would like to take part in the climb can meet at the Community Hall/Kehoes Pub in Kilcash at 12pm on St. Stephen’s Day. Please support this worthy cause.
