DCU students will be ‘begging, borrowing and stealing’ their way to Edinburgh to raise money for the Donal Walsh Foundation

We will take the ‘stealing’ remark with a pinch of salt…

DCU students are banding together to raise money for the Donal Walsh #LiveLife Foundation by ‘begging, borrowing and stealing’ their way across the Irish sea to the Scottish capital, Edinburgh.

60 students will take part in the race from Dublin airport. They will be armed only with a backpack and a mind full of dreams of glory and they must use these to make their way to Scotland via two mystery checkpoints in the UK. Where’s Bear Grylls when you need him, huh?

The checkpoints they must reach in the UK will be revealed on the morning of the race, which takes place on November 21, to ensure that no prior planning of transport occurs.

To enter, the 30 teams had to raise €50 and the DCU Enterprise Society hopes to raise at least 8K overall for the foundation. The Donal Walsh #LiveLife Foundation aims to provide age appropriate teenage facilities in hospital and hospice care centres and spread Donal’s anti-suicide, Live Life message.

The students will have no money, no bank cards and they will have to rely on their own wit, quick thinking and the generosity of others in order to succeed in the adrenaline-fuelled trip.
