Fancy joining this year’s skinny dip in Galway for Children’s Cancer Charity?

galway daily skinny dip
Registration for the ninth annual Dip in the Nip which will take place on May 7th at a beach in Galway is now open!  The location will be disclosed to participants closer to the event.

Hundreds of brave Galwegians have stripped off to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean since 2009, raising thousands of euro for Hand in Hand – the Children’s Cancer Charity in Galway.

The charity’s Dip in the Nip event raises vital funds which allows it to provide families across Ireland with the support they need at the most difficult time imaginable.

Hundreds of participants will gather together on a beach, shedding clothes – and legging it into the North Atlantic. The Dip in the Nip was the world’s first skinny dip for charity.

Dip for yourself, for loved ones, or for those you’ve lost. Whatever your reason, join thousands of others who have peeled off – and take part in the Hand in Hand Dip in the Nip 2018 and raise vital funds to help families across the country.

When cancer marks us, we need life-affirming moments and a way to find cheer amidst the doom and gloom. If you’ve done a Dip before, you will have experienced the wonderful sense of joy and carefree-ness it brings. If not, come along and live it for yourself!
