Rope For Hope

This is an exhilarating opportunity for you to abseil 115 feet down the State Street building at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay - one of the tallest buildings on Dublin’s Quays, with views looking over the River Liffey and the Aviva Stadium.

Anyone can take part in our Rope for Hope event and  Make-A-Wish are asking supporters to be brave for 15 minutes and in the process help with fundraising so that we can continue to transform children's lives. You will be helping to make wishes come true for seriously ill children in Ireland.

Event participants will abseil alongside an amazing group of people including some wish kids, wish parents, corporate partners and supporters. Participants are each required to raise a minimum of €1,000 to take part. This can be done in a variety of ways: as individuals, in a team of friends/colleagues or you can fundraise to nominate your boss!

Registration is now open and there is a €100 registration fee, which will contribute to the fundraising target so you will only have a further €900 to raise! 

Please sign up below and our Fundraising Officer Mary Quille will be in contact with you. If you require further details, email mary@makeawish.ie  or call the office on (01) 205 2012.
