The LugMOquilla Challenge was set up after a relation of mine Tommy Stewart lost his battle with Cancer on the 2nd of November 2012. Tommy was a great lover of the outdoors and told great stories of hiking in Ireland.
After seeing what he went through I decided to do something to help other people battling cancer in Ireland.
So with it being Movember/november and a love of the outdoors The LugMOquilla Challenge was born.
Our first hike was the highest mountain in Leinster Lugnaquilla (thats where I got the name LugMOquilla) with 12 friends.
Fast forward 4 years later we have conquered Lugnaquilla twice and last year we took on Irelands highest peak Carrauntoohil with a crew of over 70 and raised just under 20000 euro for the Irish Cancer Society.
We couldn't of done it without the support from Movember and sponsorship from Beacon Hospital & Skellig Engineering Ltd.
This year as part of Movember we have set up a MOVE event its basically 30 moves in 30 days with one of those moves being our hike!
The hike will take place on the 21/11/15 starting at 9:30 am leaving crone wood car park in Co. Wicklow and taking on the mighty Maulin & Djouce mountains.
The hike will be approximately 5-6 hrs and a distance of around 16km . The hike is open to everyone MObro's & MOsista's and as always a FUN day out!
