Ready for the thrill and exhilaration of taking part in one of our extreme challenges? Challenge yourself and join our fight against cancer by climbing a mountain, doing a triathlon or parachute jump, or creating your own extreme event.
The Irish Cancer Society has teamed up with the Irish Parachute Club (www.skydive.ie) based in Co. Offaly and Skydive Ireland (www.skydiveireland.ie) based in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary to offer you the experience of a lifetime with an adrenaline-filled parachute jump.
Contact us on 1850 60 60 60 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to specify whether you want to do your jump in Offaly or Tipperary, and we’ll send you your Skydive Application and Indemnity Form. When you return this form to us, we’ll send you your sponsorship cards, a fundraising guide and any further materials you may need.
We are delighted to have partnered up with Xtreme Challenges for some really exciting challenges! Take part in some of the most difficult endurance races and ultra marathons in Ireland and help raise much needed money for the Irish Cancer Society!

Friends and family are a great support, but sometimes you're afraid to tell them what's really on your mind. It's different when you're talking to someone who's experienced cancer. Thanks Action Breast Cancer!

Not having to worry about getting to and from treatment gives me great peace of mind. It's reassuring to know that there are good, caring people volunteering their time simply to help people like me.

"The support the Irish Cancer Society showed my Mam and our family in the final weeks of her illness was so appreciated. It allowed us to have one last wonderful Christmas with Mam at home. She was so happy in her last couple of weeks, in her own home, that it was almost hard to believe her illness was so serious. A very tough illness incredibly had a beautiful ending. Our family often talk of your nurses and how special they really are."
