Colours Climb

This April and May, we want you to team up with your family, club, school, college, or workplace for our Colours Climb, backed by Gaelforce Events. It’s not just a fantastic group hike but also a crucial fundraiser for supporting youth mental health.

We know good relationships are important for our happiness and mental health. Gather your friends, put on your walking gear, wear your team, school, or club colours, and explore the Irish countryside while raising much-needed funds for Jigsaw.


Do your own hike!

Take on the Colours Climb challenge in your community. Keep it simple with a step challenge or a walk around the neighbourhood.

If you're feeling adventurous, take it on the road and hit the trails!
