Will you Walk the Line for DWMRT?
Walk the Line is coming back and will take place on Saturday 12th March 2016. Walk the Line is a fund-raising event for the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team starting mid afternoon and running in to the night.
The event consists of two route options; a 28Km loop to the Hell fire Club from Lamb Doyles and back or the shorter 14Km Lamb Doyles to Hell Fire club, with a shuttle bus to bring you back to Lamb Doyles.

Fundraising: A major activity for DWMRT
The Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team is a voluntary 112/999 rescue service, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, responding to those who find themselves lost and or injured in the mountains and we take this job very seriously.
We run a tight ship when it comes to budgeting to keep the four team vehicles on the road, insure our members, keep up to date training for technical rescue, remote medical care and swift water rescue to name a few. Aside from the annual running costs of the team which are about €60,000 per year the main focus for our fundrasing now is finding a suitable home for the team to facilitate this ongoing training, acting as a base for callouts as well as weather protected cover for our emergency vehicles.
Last year the team responded to almost 70 callouts and remember that’s on top of all the training, team meetings and fundraising that all members will have to attend in order to keep the show on the road.
Thankfully we get great public support with our street collections, private donations as well as walking/running clubs who support us whenever they can by running a fundraiser or by just making a donation. We also have a group of “Friends of Mountain Rescue”, who pay an annual subscription and in return are kept informed of how the Team are doing and on up and coming events etc. We have also received donations from people who have found themselves in the unfortunate position of requiring our assistance.
As you can see DWMRT is very much depending on all sorts of support from the community in which we operate and whether it’s a tenner or ten cent we say a heartfelt THANK-YOU to everyone and anyone who writes a cheque, donates a prize for a raffle or simply puts their hand in their pocket to help the team.
We simply would not exist without your help so thank you for your continued support and backing.
In addition to public generosity we also have the backing of our main sponsor The Great Outdoors who continue to support us in any way they can especially when it comes to equipment.
