On the 30th of August, Miles for Emma is asking people to challenge themselves by climbing Croagh Patrick.
This event is to help promote Equality and Awareness for Children with Special Needs. We are also asking anyone taking part on the day to wear the colour Purple. We want to make a real statement and loads of people going up and the mountain in the same colour shows unity. So for all you hillwalking enthusiasts looking for a unique challenge for 2015?
