Exciting news today as we have announced Community Rescue Service as our charity partner for RAMPAGE 2019. Community Rescue Service provide vital and lifesaving roles across Northern Ireland, staffed with volunteers from across all communities, they provide all aspects of search and rescue falling under the remit of Lowland Rescue, including ground, inland, water, bike, boat and more.
For each person who enters our Rampage Run in 2019, we will allocate £5 of their entry fee to go directly to Community Rescue Service. We hope to raise around £5000 for this important charity. These funds will go some way in helping the Community Rescue Service provide extra support to our local communities all over Northern Ireland. We would like to thank each and every person who enters our Rampage Run, which consequently helps raise funds for the vital work this charity provides.
Sharon Gibson (pictured) from Community Rescue Service stated “We are delighted to have been chosen by The Jungle to be their charity partner for 2019, as we are reliant on the good will of companies and the general public. This funding will help us extend our reach across Northern Ireland and provide help and support for some of the most vulnerable people in our society. We also aim to build on our relationship with the Jungle to provide a base for our services in Mid Ulster.
RAMPAGE is an obstacle course race held at The Jungle outdoor activity centre, for adults there is a 10k option with 60 obstacles along with a 5k route should competitors find the going too much for them. The following day there is a teens and kids race where parents are invited to run along with their kids free of charge.
Hugh McCloy (Pictured) stated “Community Rescue Services are relatively unsung heroes; we value and respect the volunteers who in their free time provide a much needed service to our community. Run RAMPAGE Weekender has quickly become one of Ireland’s largest and toughest Obstacle Course Races attracting runners from across Ireland and the UK since it began 3 years ago, as we get many requests each year it is hard to pick one charity so in response to this we have a special discount rate for charities who wish to enter teams. Along with this we invite runners who are interested in using the race for fundraising to donate to Community Rescue Services.”
Buoyed by its phenomenal success RAMPAGE is now in it’s third year of running. Previous charities supported have been SANDS NI, who we managed to raise £4,500 for and The HUB BT80, who we raised £5000 for. We take our social corporate responsibility very seriously at The Jungle and this is our way of using the activities and events that we hold to give back to the community.
