Are you up for a challenge with the CRC?
The Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) provides a range of specialised services for children and adults with physical disabilities, and its facilities and services are available to people from all over Ireland.
All the services provided by the CRC are free of charge and as such the Clinic needs to raise a great deal of money to maintain the high standard of care. To help raise funds, the CRC are looking for adventurous people to join them on this once in a lifetime challenge to Myanmar (Burma).
For the intrepid traveler, finding a new and undiscovered destination that has been untouched by the ravages of mass tourism, can be a challenging feat. But this year, one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world, Burma, is back on the map. Following the Myanmar elections in 2010 and the release of Aung San Suu Kyi from fifteen years house arrest, the tourism boycott has been lifted and Burma is set for what looks like an influx of visitors from all over the world.
Taking place from 4-15th November, the challenge will take in many sights of this magical country including the 4,000 pagodas of Bagan, the forest trails of Mount Popa, the Shan Hills and the foot rowing fishermen of Inle Lake. With over 135 ethnic groups and hundreds of tribal villages, the CRC Burma Challenge is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit Burma before this mystical land is changed forever.
There are only 30 places available for this Challenge and to reserve a place on the Challenge participants must pay a €400 deposit and raise a minimum target of €4,300 by organising various fundraising events throughout the year. You can hold weekly coffee mornings, quiz nights, sponsored walks....it's up to you!
