At NICHS our mission is to prevent chest, heart and stroke conditions in Northern Ireland and to care for those already affected by them. We need £3.5 million a year to run our care and prevention programmes and to fund research. 80% of this income is reliant on donations from the public.
Without your support we couldn’t be here making a difference.
Fun events. Running events. Challenge events. How will you support us?

Abseil down the Europa Hotel
Reach new heights and abseil the famous Europa Hotel in Belfast for NICHS. Standing at over 160 feet you can take in the views across Belfast and wave to your waiting friends and family watching you from the bottom.
You can help save lives here in Northern Ireland by taking on an abseil challenge. Join the fight against chest, heart and stroke illnesses in Northern Ireland and sign up today!
Choose your own date and climb with friends, family or work colleagues. It’s on our doorstep yet many of us have never ventured up it!
Pick your day in a month or two from now (to give you time to fundraise) and plan your climb.
We will provide you with a route map, kit list and training advice before your event.
Sky Dive from 13,000 Feet
Have you got what it takes to free fall from 13,000 feet? If yes, then NICHS is looking for you to take to the skies to help raise vital funds for our work.
The sky dive will be organised by MoonJumper, a professional skydiving centre based in Garvagh. You can pick your own date and can jump on your own or as part of an organised group from your office, school, college, or club. You will be taking part in a tandem jump where you will be strapped to an experienced instructor.
If you prefer not to do one of the above events, or just like to do your own thing, you are very much welcome to organise your own event to raise funds to help us support families across Northern Ireland affected by chest, heart and stroke illnesses.
