RISE Benefit Concert Photos

A link below to a selection of photos from our recent RISE Benefit Concert which was held on May 20th in Vicar Street, Dublin.

'JUMP for RISE' Video

Brilliant video clip from our recent 'JUMP for RISE' fundraiser, which really captures the sense of excitement (and fear!). Cathy and the other very brave 11 jumped from 10,000 feet, free falling 6,000 feet at terminal velocity (around 120 mph) in just 30 seconds!

So what's next? Any good ideas for future RISE fundraisers??
