Ready for the thrill and exhilaration of taking part in one of our extreme challenges? Push yourself and join our fight against cancer by climbing a mountain, trying a triathlon or doing a parachute jump. If none of those appeal, why not create your own extreme event?
Every year hundreds of people challenge themselves by taking on a mud run in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. Why not join them? Not only can you get fit and have fun but you will also be helping fight back against cancer by raising vital funds to support others affected by the disease.
When you join Team Irish Cancer Society, you will get support & training advice to help you do your very best! Together, we won’t give up until cancer does

Are you thinking of doing a skydive for the Irish Cancer Society?
Check out two of the skydive challenge providers below. Both providers offer a choice of Solo or Tandem jump depending on your individual choice.
Irish Skydiving Club
The Irish Skydiving Club is based in Co. Kilkenny. To jump with the Irish Skydiving Club you'll need to raise a minimum sponsorship of €480. Of this amount, €240 will be paid directly to the Irish Skydiving Club. Please discuss the best way to fundraise directly with the club.
The Irish Parachute Club
The Irish Parachute Club is based in Offaly. To jump with The Irish Parachute Club you'll need to raise a minimum sponsorship of €520. Of this amount, €260 will be paid directly to the Irish Parachute Club. Please discuss the best way to fundraise directly with the club.
With both clubs you have two options to fund your skydive:
- You can choose to cover the cost of the charity skydive rate yourself (€240 or €280 depending on your choice of provider) and fundraise for the remaining amount
- You can fundraise to cover the cost of your skydive (raising a total of at least €480 or €560 depending on your choice of provider). With this method we ask that you be transparent with supporters and let them know that a portion of donations will go to cover the cost of your skydive.
- Please discuss the best way to fundraise with your chosen provider as they may have certain requirements that you will need to follow. If you plan to fundraise to cover the cost of your skydive we would recommend using the sponsorship cards provided by the club and collecting cash. The Irish Cancer Society is unable to forward the funds raised through online platforms to your provider if you have fundraised online to cover the cost of your jump
