A team of 25 employees will take on the challenge of trekking 20 miles across County Down in aid of charity partner, Cancer Fund for Children.
Our ’Coast to Coast’ challenge takes place on 9th September at sea level in Rostrevor, with the route extending along mountainous terrain through the Mourne Way. The group will finish their hike at a particularly special location, Cancer Fund for Children’s Daisy Lodge in Newcastle, a purpose-built therapeutic centre for the families of young people affected by cancer.
Emma Rooney, Associate Director, who heads up the firm’s charity committee said “We wanted to create a fundraising challenge that brings us out of our offices and into the great outdoors to raise as much support and awareness as we can for our fantastic charity partner.
“For us, it is poignant that our fundraising walk will finish at Daisy Lodge, a wonderful place that offers peace and respite to so many families affected by cancer in Northern Ireland each year. The whole team is truly looking forward to what is set to be a fun, tough and thoroughly enriching adventure.”
Speaking about the importance of the fundraiser, Jordana Stoney-Wilson of Cancer Fund for Children said: “It is just fantastic to see the enthusiasm and energy that the team at Millar McCall Wylie is putting into their fundraising efforts with this amazing Coast to Coast challenge.
“Corporate partnerships and initiatives such as this are hugely valuable in supporting our services. We will be behind Millar McCall Wylie every step of the way as they set out on their trail, and we’ll cheer them on with great pride as they arrive at Daisy Lodge. All funds raised will go towards supporting our vision that no child should face cancer alone.”
