The ninth annual Dip in the Nip will take place on May 7th at a beach in Galway, the location will be disclosed to participants closer to the event.

Fancy getting your kit off for cancer? Since 2009 this annual event has seen hundreds of brave participants strip off and take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean raising thousands of euros for the Galway based charity.

Hand in Hand’s Dip in the Nip raises vital funds which allow the charity 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.

It’s more than getting naked, getting cold and getting wet. In the ocean, everyone is equal. Proud bellies, mastectomy scars, cellulite, we’re all there. Skinny-dipping is the ultimate in life-affirmation, so the Dip in the Nip lets us celebrate life in all its beauty.

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!
