On the move text

Why take part?

‘On the move’ with Focus Ireland, offers a selection of fitness and adventure challenges to take part in from June 15 to 16, to raise vital funds for homeless services.  Throughout the series, participants will get to experience the splendour that makes Ireland so unique while fundraising for Focus Ireland.

Participants are encouraged to use their involvement as an opportunity to reflect on the challenges faced by the families and children experiencing homelessness in Ireland. For them, without a place they can call home to come back to, being ‘on the move’ takes on a whole other meaning. But you can take a stand against homelessness and be active for change in Ireland.

Whether you decide to take on a challenge by yourself or together with a team, enjoy the event, challenge yourself and raise vital funds.

Why fundraise?

Focus Ireland works to bring about real and lasting change for the people who need our help. With your support, Focus Ireland can reach even more people on the brink of homelessness and make a real and lasting difference to those currently living in emergency accommodation.

By taking part in ‘On the move’, you allow Focus Ireland to provide individuals, families and children trapped in homelessness with the immediate and practical support they need.
