Paddy's Day Dip

By Jamie and Holly

Paddy's Day Dip to raise money for dealing with cancer in Ireland.

Ever since both of our fathers were given a cancer diagnosis, we learned first hand about the challenges faced by many families in Ireland when they see a loved ones life impacted by cancer. 

We decided to come together to organise a fundraiser in aid of cancer prevention and support.

With the rise in popularity of sea swimming in recent years and Jamie's father Keith's love for sea swimming (even at 89) we thought what better way to get everyone together than to arrange a sunrise sea swim fundraiser in aid of The Marie Keating Foundation.This is where the idea for the ‘Paddy’s Day Dip’ was born.

 

- This Paddy's Day we will be asking people to set their alarm and head somewhere scenic for a sunrise dip.  

- Sunrise 06.34 AM

- Whether you are by the sea, a lake or even a plunge pool, we would love to see you get involved for this amazing cause. 

 

Current estimates state that almost 42,000 people in Ireland get cancer each year. There is a ripple effect that comes with each diagnosis leaving friends and family members feeling upset and worried about their loved ones. But they are not alone. 

With this event we want to focus on bringing people together to raise much needed funds for The Marie Keating Foundation.

Today, the Marie Keating Foundation are one of the leading voices in Ireland for cancer prevention, awareness and support. This is a charity very close to the hearts of many people in Ireland and the work they do is incredible.

We would love to see photos of your Paddy’s Day Dip on social media if you could tag @Paddys_Day_Dip and @MarieKeatingfoundation on Instagram and use the hashtag #PDD24. Green togs, towels and hats would be ideal for the day that is in it, the more green the better.
