‘Dancing with the Stars’ participant and actor Ryan Andrews and partner, Primary School Teacher Michaela O’Neill are launching this year’s Children's Health Foundation Crumlin, formerly CMRF Crumlin, Abseil Challenge. Ryan and Michaela will be going to new heights on the 18th September when they abseil off the roof of Croke Park in Dublin. By dropping 100 feet off the Hogan Stand, Ryan and Michaela are raising vital funds to support the care and treatment of sick children in CHI at Crumlin.
“We're delighted to be taking part in the Abseil challenge,” says Ryan. “It all made it real when we put the harnesses on and looked out onto Killiney Hill to hone our abseiling skills. It's a long way down to be honest. We think we're ok with heights, and we've never had a problem with it before. But when you're hanging off Croke Park it's a different story. So we'll see. I'm saying we'll be ok with heights now but hopefully I won't back out on the day.”
Sign up to join Ryan and Michaela as they abseil off Croke Park on the 18th of September 2020. CMRF Crumlin hopes to raise €30,000 this year with spaces limited to 80 people.
There is a €70 registration fee and the minimum people must raise is an additional €350. Participants will climb down behind the large screen on the Hogan stand before dropping down in a 100 foot abseil to the pitch side.
