These are any type of official events you might like to participate in and raise funds for the OCF; they can be anything from the VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon, Dublin City Marathon to the Great Dublin Bike Ride, etc. Scroll down to see all manner of events you can choose from.

A CYO-Event (Create-Your-Own) Event:

This is any type of event you might like to create to support us; we’ve had a “Strictly Come Dancing” night, a coffee morning, golf outings, 5 Aside Challenges, Pilates Workshops and even a sponsored Gym Event, as well as some fabulous Fashion Shows.  We’re open to all sorts of ideas and love helping our supporters make these events happen.
