Brainwave would like to thank Brian Higgins, the Doyle family and all the 30 climbers who undertook a weekend climbing challenge in June to raise money for SUDEP awareness, research and support.

The challenge was organised to commemorate Barbara Doyle who passed away in November 2007 from SUDEP. Barbara was a keen climber who had planned to fundraise for Brainwave by doing a climb. Her close friends and family decided to fulfil her wish and continue to organise the hike she herself had planned.

The climb co-incided with what would have been Barbara's 31st birthday - June 20th and five mountains were climbed:

  • Benbulbin, Co. Sligo.
  • Croagh Patrick, Co Mayo
  • Carrantuohill, Co. Kerry
  • Devil's Ladder, Co. Kerry
  • Lugnaquilla, Co Wicklow

The event was a tremendous effort by all , in Barbara's memory and raised almost €50,000. You can read more about the event by downloading the article below, written by the climbers themselves.

All the monies raised will be used solely for SUDEP research, awareness and support.
