- Contact the organisers and enter the event.
- Then contact Chronic Pain Ireland so that we can provide you with your T-Shirt, sponsorship card and promote your fundraising efforts.

Response Clothing Co. on selecting Chronic Pain Ireland as it's charity partner for 2018 means that everything sold in the Response.? Clothing range will result in a €2 donation to Chronic Pain Ireland.
If you haven't heard of Response.? their mission is to "offer quality T-shirts that people can be proud to wear. Why? When people see you in your Response .? they know you care, about society, about people, about the future. That you care about the issues affecting all of us".
They state "Yes, we want to make money. We want to feed our families, pay for the roof over our heads, the basics in life. But, there are many people that don’t even have these basics. And while Response .? is not a charity in itself we donate as much as we can to the those in our society who need it the most".
Their first blog to inform their custombase about why they chose CPI relates to a sufferer of chronic pain (a CPI member) and can be read here
