Former Special Forces operator and now Chief Instructor on RTE’s Ultimate Hell Week, Ray Goggins, is looking for volunteers to take part in a new ‘Dare to be Brave’ adventure series to raise vital funds to support sick children and their families in Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly. 

Ray has teamed up with Children’s Health Foundation to launch this exciting new series of adrenaline-inducing events, which includes a 13,000ft skydive, abseil from Croke Park’s iconic Hogan Stand, an assault course challenge and a 24-hour wilderness survival challenge.

The events will take place between May and August 2022, and will provide participants with exciting, once-in-a-lifetime experiences:

-    May 26th – 27th – Air, Land & Water Assault Course Challenge – Blessington, Co. Wicklow

-    June 20th – 23rd – Croke Park Abseil Challenge – Croke Park, Dublin 1

-    July 21st – 23rd – 24 Hour Wilderness Survival Challenge – Glendalough, Co. Wicklow

-    August 24th – 27th – Skydive Challenge – Edenderry, Co. Offaly

Participants can sign-up to take part in all challenges, or they can choose which of the challenges they want to take on throughout the summer. Additionally, people can take on the challenges by themselves, or they can take part as a member of a team. Why not dare your friends or colleagues to be brave with you?

Speaking at a ‘Dare to be Brave’ photoshoot recently, Ray Goggins said “This series will raise money that will help so many sick children and families from right across Ireland.

"As a proud Ambassador for the series, I would like to call on everyone to be brave this summer, get out of your comfort zones, and take on one or more of the challenges.”
