WARRIORS for a great cause plan to storm the iconic King John’s Castle and abseil down its walls this August. And they are inviting the brave and the bold of Limerick and beyond to join them.

Participants will be part of the party and will get a panoramic view as the Tour de Munster rolls into town.

A thrilling atmosphere and celebrations guaranteed on the day and most importantly a massive sense of achievement in taking the leap (30 metres no less) and raising much needed funds for Down Syndrome Limerick – a local charity that supports children and adults with Down syndrome.

Down Syndrome Limerick deliver supports and services to children and adults with Down syndrome to help them to reach their full potential.

Participants must raise a minimum of €250 in sponsorship to take the leap of faith. Downs Syndrome Limerick will allocate specific abseil times and participants must be available from 1.30pm on the day.

Everyone is welcome to come earlier than their slot and stay later to cheer others on.  Down Syndrome Limerick will automatically set up individual fundraising pages on registration.

The entry fee covers the cost of participation and all money raised will go entirely to the charity.
