Getting in a few steps ahead of this Mother’s Day ‘Walk in Pink’ in aid of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute were event organisers L-R Ethelle Fahey, Tina Monroe, Bernie Ryan and Johanna Downer members of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute Galway voluntary fundraising committee.

The National Breast Cancer Research Institute is asking people across the county to ‘Walk in Pink’ for the charity on Mother’s Day, Sunday 27 March.

The walk starts at 10.30am at the Claddagh Hall where those participating will walk to Blackrock and then back again.

Those taking part are asked to gather at the Claddagh Hall from 10am where Ronan Lardner of Galway Bay FM will play music before the walk gets underway.

The event is organised by members of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute’s voluntary fundraising committee in Galway who hope to help make a difference for the many Irish women suffering from breast cancer.

One in seven Irish women will be diagnosed with breast cancer with over 3,507 cases diagnosed annually.

Funds raised from the walk will go directly to support the breast cancer research team at the Lambe Institute at NUI Galway, led by Prof Michael Kerin.

Registration is €20 and all are welcome. Participants also get a free pink pom pom beanie hat. Sign up now at: www.WalkInPink.ie
