Launch of Colours Climb with Gaelforce Events

Launch of Colours Climb with Gaelforce Events

Friday, 15 March 2024

Colours Climb invites individuals to unite with their family, friends, classmates, club members, teammates, or colleagues in a collective effort to take on a walking or hiking challenge, all while wearing your favourite colour, uniform, or jersey.

Gaelforce Events has been a dedicated supporter of Jigsaw since 2014, making a significant impact by raising and donating over €50,000 during the past decade to support young people’s mental health.

As a testament to their ongoing commitment, as part of Gaelforce Events sponsorship of the Colours Climb, they will be hosting a special charity hike for Jigsaw at the upcoming Gaelforce 10K Kippure event on Sunday, 14 April 2024, in Kippure Co Wicklow.

Ciara Young
Director of Gaelforce Events
Marking our tenth year as proud charity partners with Jigsaw, Gaelforce Events is delighted to sponsor the Jigsaws Colour Climb.

Mental health influences every part of a young person's life, and we strongly support Jigsaw's vision that every young person deserves support for their unique journey.

Working alongside Jigsaw, we promote outdoor activity as a vital tool for enhancing mental well-being, while they provide the essential services to understand and support young people’s mental health.

We hope you will join us at Gaelforce 10K Kippure, or do your own challenge, to support Jigsaw to make a difference, one step at a time, towards a future where every young person thrives.

Recognising the crucial role of relationships in good mental health and wellbeing, Jigsaw emphasises the importance of connections with family, friends, colleagues, classmates, and teammates. That is why they are asking you to come together with your community and undertake a Colours Climb walking or hiking challenge this April.

Justin McDermott
Jigsaw Fundraising Manager
We think Colours Climb is the perfect way to experience a sense of wellbeing and togetherness that you get when undertaking a challenge with your family, friends, clubmates, classmates or colleagues, while also raising vital funds to support young people experiencing challenges with their mental health. 

Like anyone experiencing a challenge in life, it is the strength and support we get from others that helps us get through. That is why we are so delighted that Gaelforce Events have come on board as our Colours Climb sponsor.  They have been such incredible friends and supporters to us all here in Jigsaw over the past 10 years. 

Their ongoing support and commitment shows how working together we can ensure young people have the support they need to thrive.

This partnership marks a decade of collaboration and emphasises the shared commitment of Jigsaw and Gaelforce Events to positively impact the mental wellbeing of young people. The Gaelforce 10K Kippure charity hike is a fantastic opportunity for participants to actively engage in supporting Jigsaw’s crucial mission.

Colours Climb, proudly supported by Gaelforce Events, is a walking or hiking group challenge that is taking place throughout April 2024. For more information on how you can be part of Colours Climb, visit www.jigsaw.ie/coloursclimb.
