Run and Walk for Life Raises €156,000

Solas Cancer Support Centre Run and Walk for Life raises €156,000 On announcing the amount raised this year from the Run and Walk for Life Dr Brian Creedon, Chair of the Solas Cancer Support Centre spoke of his appreciation to all those involved. ‘To be able to raise €156,000 at the “2017 Run and Walk for Life” is just astonishing.  We have such a huge debt of gratitude to pay to the runners, walkers and fundraisers. The funds generated will be ploughed back into our services, both here in Waterford and in Dungarvan. Our services are free of charge and available to people effected by cancer, their families and carers. All of our funds annually come from the generosity of our fundraisers and supporters.

We are already looking forward to the 2018 event, when we celebrate our 10th Anniversary and plans are already under way to make this the best event yet .

Tracy McDaid, Chair of the voluntary organising Committee explains that the event would not be a success without the huge help received. ‘The “Run and Walk for Life” could not happen without the support of our sponsors and donors. To Beat and Datapac, all the other contributors, we would like to thank every one of you and hope that we will see you again in 2018. Once again, on behalf of the organising committee, thank you’.
