Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke
Fundraising Events

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?

Jolly Jump 2019

Date: Sunday 8th December

Location: Skydive Wild Geese, 116 Carrowreagh Rd, Garvagh, BT51 5LQ

Take on our sponsored festive flight challenge and make it a Christmas to remember, whilst raising vital funds for those living with chest, heart and stroke conditions.

You will join our team of fellow charity skydivers in the plane which will climb to 13,000 feet in the air, before making the Jolly Jump in tandem with a professional skydiving instructor. After freefalling for a thrilling 7000 foot, the instructor will open the canopy and steer you both to the ground safely.

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!

Climb Slieve Donard

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.
