Think you're tough enough? Prove it!



Our new CEO will be taking part in the Toughest challenge, on the 23rd April to raise money for vulnerable Irish people and we want you to join him!  

An international event, this will be its first time in the UK - 8km, 40 obstacles- Toughest trailer


You want me to do what?!

Monkey jumps, walls climbs, the tower jump and a huge water slide with a run up a 35-degree ski slope to the finish line. All in the name of charity! For more details, take a look here.

Am I Tough Enough?

You’re Irish, do we need to say any more?  And it’s not as tough as being an older Irish person isolated and alone in their home or a vulnerable young person on the streets.   For you, your ordeal will be over on 23rd April and, with your help, theirs will be too. 

Is it worth the pain?

YES! You get bragging rights. We’ll also pay your entry fee, as long as you raise a minimum of £250 on Just Giving, and give you an LIC t-shirt.  We will be on hand to offer support with set up, and, if you want, we’ll promote you on our social media platforms and website to help you with your fundraising. 

And if that’s not enough, you can be sure that the money you raise will be used to provide desperately needed care for those at risk. Every pound you raise will make a real difference to someone's life. 

You will be helping us, help others in need.  

Okay, so where is it?

Pippingford Park, Nutley, East Sussex, TN22 3HW.  Nearest railway station is East Grinstead from Victoria. 

I’m sold. So, how do I get involved?

The Boring, but Actually Quite Important Bit

If you’ve read this far then you probably feel physically fit enough to give it a go. However, this challenge will need sensible training and a good level of fitness when you set off at the starting line.

If in any doubt at all, about your ability to complete the course, you must consult your doctor.  We are not able to offer medical advice on fitness, but suggest that, if you have muscular/skeletal injuries, are asthmatic, or a smoker, believe you have high blood pressure or may be pregnant, or have a family history of heart disease or diabetes, or any other condition that might impact your ability to run and climb obstacles, you should do so.  It doesn’t mean you won’t be able to, but it’s better to be sure and a medical professional may well be able to advise you on any limitations you might need to be mindful of.

We can’t advise on insurance or provide cover for you so, if you have private health insurance or similar, you should check with your insurance provider to see if you need additional cover.  You should certainly consider cover, if an injury would impact on your employment.
