It was a sea of pink in the Phoenix Park on Saturday September 9th as over 6,000 women, men and children took part in the Great Pink Run with Avonmore Slimline Milk raising over €350,000 to support Breast Cancer Ireland’s pioneering research and awareness programmes, nationally.
TV3’s Elaine Crowley and rugby commentator Shane Byrne led out the run where many of those participating wore elaborate pink costumes and painted their faces in show of support for the many thousands of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in this country.
Aisling Hurley, CEO of Breast Cancer Ireland comments “The Great Pink Run has gone from strength to strength over the past seven years and this year we have exceeded the targets we set in terms of registrations and monies raised online. Thanks to the support of our long-time supporters and sponsors including Glanbia, Beacon Hospital, Irish Life Health, Aut Even Hospital Kilkenny, Vincent and Beatty Solicitors, Its4Women, Alkermes and Dunnes Stores we can ensure that 100% of funds raised from entries and individual sponsorship go directly to fund our ongoing efforts”
Director of Communications and Public Affairs at Glanbia, Mark Garrett says, “We are delighted to be lead sponsors of the Great Pink Run for the third year and to have been part of the sea of pink with our colleagues and friends”
The Great Pink Run Dublin 2019 is being held on Saturday October 19th in the Phoenix Park and registration is open now.
