Mountain Challenge 2010 – footprints to Kenya!

10 June 2010
The weekend of the 6th June will remain in some people’s minds for a long time. This was the weekend when people from all over Ireland challenged themselves in the Mourne Mountains to raise funds of FOL’s projects in Kenya The team arrived on Friday night for a team briefing, and introduction to the weekend. Saturday morning dawned bright and early as the team headed for the Silent Valley. There began an 11 hour journey amongst some of the most amazing peaks in Ireland – with spectacular views of the Silent Valley and beyond. The team worked as a team and conquered over 8 peaks in the day before returning to the hostel in the Silent Valley Saturday night, the support team prepared a first class meal – excellent! Sunday morning dawned bright and early as the team headed for Sliabh Donard, the highest mountain in the Mourne Range. The views from Sliabh Donard were stunning – a just reward for the effort put in for all. Thank you to all the participants and the support team for your participating, determination and contribution towards FOL’s water, health and education projects in Kenya.
