Are you up for a Charity Challenge?

The ISPCA through Charity Challenges is offering you the opportunity to get fit by signing up for an Open Charity Challenge in 2019! Some of the challenges are exclusively in aid of one particular charity, but where you see the words “in aid of any charity”, you can raise funds for the ISPCA as a registered Irish charity and we authorise you to fundraise in our name.

For further information on the challenges available, catering to all abilities please email our fundraising team at or call us on 043 3325035 Ext. 3
