New Year New You!

Connect with friends and improve your health!

The Offaly Hospice Sunflower Steps Challenge is an 8-week fitness challenge that runs from January 08th through to March 03rd 2024. It's not just for walkers, our app allows for all of your sporting endeavours to be converted into steps! Get together with friends, family or colleagues at home or internationally to form a team to take part in the challenge! 
Fun House are thrilled to be partnered with Offaly Hospice for a number of exciting fundraising events in 2024! We thank Mary Murphy and Prof. Humphrey O'Connor, Director Offaly Hospice, for their support and approval of our initiatives. We look forward to working together. 

Along with Sunflower Steps we are producing Calendar Girls The Musical in Esker Arts Centre in May 2024, and will be re-creating that famous "nude" calendar from the movie, with all profits going to The Offaly Hospice. 

Tullamore Town FC are also on board and are offering use of their parking and toilet facilities for challenge participants who want somewhere safe to walk in the dark evenings. They are also kindly offering a rehearsal space for Calendar Girls.
