Taking the YSPI Camino Challenge will help save young lives through awareness, prevention and compassion!

Ireland still has one of the highest reported rates of death by suicide in the European Union with young males under 21 being most at risk but children as young as 9 years old have died by suicide too. Our experience is that the actual rate is much higher, and almost no school or community in the country is untouched by losing someone to suicide.

We want to invite you to join The YSPI Camino Challenge. Originally constructed to defend China against the nomadic tribes, the Great Wall Trek is a thrilling challenge of twists, turns, ups and downs. Beginning four hours north of Beijing, this week-long challenge tackles a series of vigorous climbs totalling over 10,000 uneven steps. The trek will follow the winding path along the Yan Mountains to the Gubeikou Gateway and takes on the famous ‘heavenly staircase’. Exhaustion will quickly be replaced with wonder as you savour the sweeping views of the surrounding mountain ranges.

The challenge ends in the vast metropolis of Beijing, with time to explore the cultural highlights of China’s historic capital. Expert English speaking guides will be with you every step of the way, managing your challenge and providing historical context to the Great Wall and its surroundings.

Joining this amazing challenge will help us to raise at least €150,000 to:

Buy a second-hand event unit
Convert it into a mobile crisis counselling centre
Staff it with trained crisis counsellors
Fund the running costs of the mobile centre for two years
Be a rapid response unit to provide fast support to teenagers at high risk of suicide

You can help us in our vital, life-saving work, and amaze yourself with one of the most thrilling experiences you can have, by joining The YSPI Camino Challenge.
