Our Virtual Walk Around Ireland. Starting on Valentines Day from The Hoban Hotel in Kilkenny, 20 of our fittest, finest staff will start walking. Over the following 32 days we are encouraging each of the participants to walk 5km every day. This will continue until St. Patricks Day when we will finish our challenge back at The Hoban Hotel, having completed an amazing 3000kms between us, which is more or less the circumference of the entire island of Ireland! All walks will take place within a 5k radius of our participant’s homes to comply with restrictions. We are raising money for two charities, The Irish Wheelchair Association and Family Carers Ireland while we walk with a joint iDonate page set up to make it easy for you to donate. Our participants can track their steps daily using a smartphone or fitness tracker, send in screenshots of their progress during the month and all of their steps will count toward our final tally. All proceeds from our iDonate fundraiser will be split between the Irish Wheelchair Association and Family Carers Ireland.

About the Cause
Family Carers Ireland
Throughout Ireland, over 500,000 family carers dedicate themselves to providing remarkable levels of care in the home to loved ones, relatives and friends with additional care needs. Caring for a loved one can be rewarding. But it can also be isolating, frightening and difficult. Family Carers Ireland is the national charity, offering family and young carers a range of free supports and services, helping to combat the challenges that a caring role can bring.
No one should have to care alone.
Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) has a vision of an Ireland where people with disabilities enjoy equal rights, choices and opportunities in how they live their lives, and where our country is a model worldwide for a truly inclusive society.
