Dip, Dive, Gimme 5! -POSTPONED

Start your New Year with a SPLASH!

This event is postponed until further notice.

We will be pushing the challenge throughout 2021 and will open registrations once it is safe to do so! Thank you for your patience!

Get together & aim for 5 dips this January! Indoor or outdoor!

With the cancellation of our Dare to Dip event we couldn’t bear letting down our loyal supporters, so we have created a COVID safe, fun and challenging event for you to start your new year with a splash!

Grab your household and form a group of dippers. We recommend allocating a day each week in January that suits you all, create a group name, make a JustGiving page and get fundraising to help those affected by cancer in your community!

Take pictures and videos of your swim and share on your JustGiving page as an update and across your social media. Don’t forget to tag @cancerfocusni #dipdivegimme5

Please remember to adhere to government guidelines and social distancing.

Cancer Focus NI t-shirts will be provided to all that register!
