Stranorlar man, Mark McIvor, is undertaking a ten mountain challenge in the month of September in aid of the North West Motor Neurone Disease Association. The event coincides with the 10th anniversary of Mark’s father, Barrie McIvor who died of M.N.D in 2002.
The North West Motor Neurone Disease Association was set up to offer aid and support to patients of the disease. The foundation of the charity is to give preference to patients within the locality.

The challenge will commence with Mount Errigal on the 5th of September, followed by Muckish on the 6th, Slieve League on the 7th, Ben Bulben on the 8th, Slieve Snacht, Inishowen on the 9th, Aghla Beg on the 10th, Common Mountain on the 11th, Binbane on the 12th, Raghin More on the 13th and ending on the 14th with Croagh Connellagh.
