About Croí

At Croí, our aim is to lead the fight against heart disease and stroke, with a particular focus on the West of Ireland. Our mission is to prevent disease, save lives and promote recovery & wellbeing.

Our work is funded from the proceeds of fundraising events, voluntary contributions and philanthropy. We are deeply grateful for the support and endorsement of our donors, supporters and volunteers who give so generously of their time and resources.

About the Challenge

Get your team together for a virtual challenge and embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of life by running, walking or jogging the Atlantic Coast!

Improve your heart health and wellbeing on this special 6-week journey, by getting out and getting active. You can gather friends, family or colleagues to join you in tackling the coast route. Whether together or apart, this virtual team challenge will suit everyone!

Anyone who raises over €50 will receive our NEW Couch to Wild Atlantic Way limited-edition, thinsulate, beanie hat and those that complete the challenge will receive an eco-friendly finishers medal. All funds raised will enable us to continue providing our vital support to those suffering from heart disease and stroke.
