Complete 30km in 30 Days for Down Syndrome Mayo

Mayo Down Syndrom is inviting you to walk, cycle, run, skip or jump 30km in 30days for the month of September in order to raise funds for Down Syndrome Mayo. As a charity, they need as much support from our communities as possible.

Every September for the last decade or more our main fundraiser was the Church Gate Collection across the county of Mayo for our members and their families. Which was always a fantastic success no matter what the weather people came out to offer their time to help us fundraise. The money raised was used for our members and to support the families. Due to Covid 19 we cannot take part in the Church Gate Collection under the new guidelines. So we are asking the public if they would like to take part in our Stroll, Walk, Run 30km in the 30 days of September and donate to any amount they can afford on our idonate page.

As we are now in uncertain times it is crucial that we move as many of these services and activities online to have some normality and to keep our members as independent as possible throughout these unusual months or years ahead. Some of our members have been cocooning as they have underlying health conditions and parents and families need to be extra careful. Services such as Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Personal Assistants and other services have been reduced or cut due to Covid 19. Please support our charity in any small way you can, every little helps and is greatly appreciated.
