Hike for Hope and Support Jigsaw This May

Hike For Hope is back. So, lace up your boots and hit the trails to raise money for a great cause!

This year, Hike For Hope is working with Jigsaw to raise vital funds for their services to support good mental health and wellbeing in young people. Last year local communities supported Hike for Hope in their droves and raised a whopping €45,000 for Pieta House! This year, the organisers are hoping for that same support in aid of Jigsaw, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health.

Mental health supports are more essential than ever right now. Jigsaw needs vital funds to ensure that the ever changing and complex challenges facing young people in Ireland are met by the continued growth and development of Jigsaw's support services. For more information on Jigsaws services and supports, please visit jigsaw.ie.

Scouting Ireland Volunteers from across the country will endeavour to raise critical funds for Jigsaw by Hiking for Hope but they need YOU, your friends and communities to help out too! Anyone can Hike for Hope, with a family member or by creating an adventurous challenge with friends. Whatever you choose, it will raise urgent funds for young people’s mental health in Ireland.
