Fancy your chances in a raft race?

Get to Grand Canal Dock on the 16th of September to put your your rafting skills to the test while raising funds for homelessness charity Depaul.

DePaul are inviting 30 corporate teams to go battle it out, powering their rafts around a course in Grand Canal Dock in a series of 500m races.

The entry fee for the Raft Race is €400 per team of four. It's their biggest fundraising event of the year. There'll be entertainment, face painting, a DJ, food and prizes in a festive atmosphere.

If you think you can row your workplace to victory sign up here.

The races kick off at 11am on they day with award ceremonies in Bank of Ireland afterwards. 

Get your boss on board and support DePaul by raising funds to support people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Depaul has 12 services across Dublin providing accommodation and vital services to those most in need.

In 2016 alone, DePaul supported over 3,600 people.

 

We think it's a more than worthy cause! Get practising and we'll see you there.
