Pink ribbon walk returns to kinsale

Thursday, 9th January, 2014 12:00am

Soprano and brand ambassador for the Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk, Cara O'Sullivan, has announced details of Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk that takes place on Sunday 2 March 2014 in aid of Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society.

In its third year, the Pink Ribbon Walk is set to be a great day where every participant wears a Pink Ribbon Walk t-shirt and Kinsale shops and restaurants will 'go pink' for the weekend. Over the past two years €205,000 has been raised by 2,000 walkers and runners.

It is hoped that more companies and groups will get involved and enter teams so that people can train regularly and enjoy the benefits of working toward a fitness goal as well as fundraising together.

“This is a great incentive for people to get in training now for the 10K walk and run, as well as raising much needed funds for Action Breast Cancer,” said Jackie Dawson, Chairperson, Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk Committee.

“Unfortunately, cancer is not going to be eradicated overnight, but we are doing our best to get active, raise awareness and fundraise for Irish Cancer Society research projects and services, particularly in the Cork area.  

Registration forms are available at Kinsale Pharmacy, Kinsale. Also, there will be an information/registration day on Saturday 18January from 11-4pm at the Temperance Hall, Kinsale.

Visit for further details and online registration is also available there or call the Pink Ribbon Walk Hotline on 086-2719556 for more information. You can also follow the Facebook and Twitter pages.
