Solas Cancer Support Centre Run for Life raises €170,000

Solas Centre RFL 221118On announcing the amount raised this year from the Run and Walk for Life, Dee Jacques, Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Solas Cancer Support Centre, spoke of her appreciation to all those involved.

"To raise €170,000 at the 2018 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 used to fund our services, both in Waterford and in our west Waterford service in Dungarvan. Our services are free of charge and available to people affected by cancer, their families and carers. Each year the services are funded by the generosity of our community and we are so appreciative of this."

Tracy McDaid, Chair of the voluntary organising Committee explains how the 10th Anniversary of the event was a huge success - "The Run and Walk for Life would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and supporters. As we celebrated our 10th Anniversary this year we also celebrated Beat’s 8th year as Media Sponsor and Datapac’s 5th year as our T Shirt Sponsor - we are so fortunate to have their continued assistance on making the Run and Walk for Life such a success. We also recognise the team of over 200 hundred amazing volunteers who make it all possible."
