The Rise Foundation Big Dip 2021

Now, more than ever, the RISE Foundation needs your help. That’s why we’re thrilled to welcome back our RISE Foundation Big Dip virtual challenge.

The money you raise will help us to continue to run our services that support family members who have a loved one with an alcohol, drug or gambling problem. Your help means more people can get the support they need, when they need it most. The best thing about a swim it is that you set your own pace and target distance. You don’t have to be an Olympic-level swimmer to make a herculean difference.

This year’s Big Dip takes place on Sunday 10th of October. We are asking people to make a donation to the Rise Foundation and then take a Dip/swim for RISE wherever you are in Ireland or indeed around the world. Last years virtual swim was a huge success with people taking part from all over Ireland and further afield. Swims/ dips took place in rivers, lakes, pools and the sea. Take a photo of your dip and share on social media #dip4rise.

So, this year in order to ensure that The RISE Foundation raises the vital funds it needs to keep the services going, the charity is calling on you to take a dip on the 10th October 2021.

To particpate please make a donation of €20 by using the Donate button on this page. 

If you would like to fundraise for the Rise Foundation then please press the start a fundraiser button and ask your friends and family to support you and the Rise Foundation. 

Then on Sunday October 10th enjoy a safe and fun Dip for Rise!
