Climb Every Mountain


Barretstown is doing everything it can to continue to support vulnerable children during this very challenging time. The COVID-19 crisis has meant that children with a serious illness, like those who come to Barretstown, who are immune compromised, are even more isolated. They need Barretstown’s therapeutic programmes now more than ever.

We are asking supporters to virtually climb a mountain for Barretstown during the months of May and June, as an individual, a team, a department, or a company. You have a choice of mountains, ranging in height so there’s something for all ages and fitness abilities. Then, in the comfort of your own home, apartment block, office building etc., simply start climbing stairs! Alternatively, you can pick a target mountain or distance, within your own area and take it outside!

This event has being designed for individuals, families and organisations. Helping us to keep active and well during Covid-19, while also raise vital funds for Barretstown campers who are among the most vulnerable during the Covid 19 pandemic.

Choose your challenge to suit your own age, fitness and abilities.

Then in the comfort of your own home or area, simply start climbing stairs, hiking, walking, running!

A great alternative to the stairs is getting out and walking within 5km of your home and clocking up your steps that way. We’re calculating 50 metres on the flat as being the equivalent of 1 flight of stairs.

Simple! Are you ready to climb?
