The “10th Anniversary Harvey’s Point Bluestack Challenge” for 2012, took place on Saturday last with a large crowd of walkers participating.
This year the organisers are celebrating the great achievement of all those who have supported this wonderful event over the years. Old friends and new gathered again to make this year’s challenge one of the best yet!
Since the first event in 2002, over €950,000 has been raised, €450,000 of that money has been distributed directly back into the many fantastic community organizations supporting Special Needs throughout Donegal.
The remaining funds are being used to fund Speech Therapy, Art Programmes, the Buddy Programme, Drama/Music Summer Camp’s, numerous events for people with special needs.
The tremendous efforts of all who raised funds, also helped to fund the purchase and development of a purpose built facility in Donegal Town.
