How it works

Pick your challenge

Participants can take part in all four challenges or pick which challenges they want to complete during the registration process.

Set your target

Each challenge has its own fundraising target which includes registration fees, but you can always raise more than your targeted amount.

You are in good hands

Each challenge will be held in collaboration with a specialist company to ensure the highest level of safety and experience.

Everyday, thousands of children put on a brave face and receive treatment in Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly.

This year, you can be brave and give every sick child the very best chance. Children’s Health Foundation’s Dare to be Brave adventure series is made up of four fun, once-in-a-lifetime events.


We must be ambitious for the children of Ireland. They deserve the highest standard of care, especially sick children where early, high quality intervention can have the greatest and most lasting impact.
Hugh Kane, Interim CEO Children’s Health Foundation.
