This year at WISPA we decided to challenge you all with something new and different every 6-8 weeks!
We have brainstormed and came up with a number of events to help you move outside your comfort zone, learn new skills, meet new people and simply challenge your everyday norm.
We will host our 'ACTIVE, FIT & SPORTY' challenge every month and will be advertising for a group of women to join us and help make it a success.
THIS COULD BE YOU!!
Check out our previous challenges below & keep an eye out for our upcoming challenges........
JULY- Mourne Mountain Challenge No.1:
On Sunday July 29th, we took a group of ten women to Newcastle, Co. Down to tackle the Mourne Mountains! The ladies braved the wet weather and made it to the top of Slieve Loughshannagh.
It was a tough but rewarding trek & we all LOVED it! Massive thank you to all the ladies that got involved and kept a smile on their faces but start to finish. A special thanks to Claire and Nicola from Belfast Activity Centre for leading the way & making it a successful day for all.
AUGUST- Lagan Dragons Challenge No.2:
We partnered up with the ladies of Lagan Dragons on Tuesday 21st August to paddle up the River Lagan in two dragon boats. What an amazing evening. We had 17 women join us for this challenge and each individual partnered up with a dragon to learn the ropes of paddling!
