#GoOrange for Solas

Solas Run Walk for Life 2020This year has been unprecedented for all businesses and with some teams working remotely has created a very new working environment.

In response to this changed landscape the Solas Cancer Support Centre’s Run & Walk for Life is a virtual event and this might be a great opportunity for your business and team to be involved.

The event takes place over the weekend of 9th to 11th October and participants can choose their own distance, route and day. This year there is an easy on-line registration system with the iconic orange t shirts are being posted directly to participants. 

Companies may like to plan a specific team building event over the weekend such as:

  • Wear orange to work on Friday 9th October – a great chance to get behind the Solas Run and Walk for Life and promote the event within your company.
  • What about arranging a relay with your team taking part in a designated location and allocating specific time slots to your team.
  • Or how about aiming for a target distance to be covered by the whole team over the weekend – a companywide challenge for employees to participate remotely choosing their own distance, 5k, 10K, 21K and being added to a total target.

We hope that Waterford and beyond will #GoOrange for Solas on the weekend of October 9th and help to fund services in 2021.

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years. It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience. Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face. We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
