On the move

A Higher Calling

On the move for Focus Ireland is back, happening from Friday 14 to Sunday 16 June 2024. On the move offers exciting options for the outdoor adventurer to support Focus Ireland by taking part in an official hike, or by organising your own, while fundraising for vital homeless services. 

Whether you're walking, hiking, or climbing, challenge yourself and tick off a bucket list item by conquering one of Ireland's famous mountains like Carrauntoohil and Croagh Patrick. We're asking you to climb a mountain for Focus Ireland, but what you're really doing is taking on the challenge of ending homelessness.

Regardless of which trail you are on, or which peak you summit, you will be answering a higher calling to help end homelessness.


Hikes

Reach new heights by taking on a hiking challenge like Carrauntoohil and Croagh Patrick, or organise your own hike, as part of On the move. Don't miss this opportunity to make your ascent count for something greater.

How it works

Register

Register for the challenge of your choice, pay the corresponding fees, and create your fundraising page to start making a difference.

Take part in an official hike, or organise your own.

Create a team

Consider rallying a team together, or go solo - it's up to you! Getting a group together is a great way to make the hike more fun, this could be as small or big as you like. If you have a team, create a team fundraising page to pool your fundraising efforts.

Fundraise

Set your fundraising target and share your fundraising page with friends, family and colleagues. Make your climb count by raising funds to support vital homeless services.

Summit your mountain

Complete your climb and fly your flag at the mountain's peak to let the world know you're doing your part to end homelessness. Share your achievement on social media, and encourage supporters to donate and help you reach your fundraising goal.

Our Objective

We're aiming to raise €50,000 to support people who are experiencing homelessness across Ireland.

With over 13,500 people currently without a home in Ireland, and with figures steadily increasing month after month, we need you now more than ever to join us in the fight against homelessness.

You can make it possible for us to keep providing vital services for children and their families who do not currently have a home of their own.

About focus ireland

Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland.

We are driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong.

Wrong because it is a failure of society that creates victims out of ordinary people and robs them of their potential, and wrong because it can be prevented and solved; allowing it to continue undermines society.

We need to challenge our society to think and act differently.

We are committed to challenging everything about homelessness: the causes, systemic failures, people’s perceptions and how it is tackled.
