Walk Around the World – Brain Tumour Ireland’s first official fund-raising event

Brain Tumour Ireland held our first charity fundraiser (Walk in the park) in Marley Park, Dublin on Sunday the 18th of November at 1pm.
It was a huge success. We were working in conjunction with the International Brain Tumour Alliance on their “Walk around the world for brain tumours” project which involves a symbolic donation of the miles you have walked to help them achieve their target of circling the earth for brain tumour awareness.
We were thrilled that 125 people came along on a chilly Sunday afternoon to support us. In all, we banked 500km (311 miles) for the International Brain Tumour Alliance and helped to fundraise just over €1,700 for Brain Tumour Ireland.
We had a great afternoon and are once again so appreciative of the support and encouragement received to date. We are excited about hosting more fundraisers in the New Year. Indeed we look forward to hearing from anyone who might be interested in getting involved or hosting their own event for the charity.

Official Launch of Ireland’s newest charity – Brain Tumour Ireland

Brain Tumour Ireland had its official launch in the Westbury hotel on Saturday the 3rd of November 2012. In what was a successful day, a number of prestigious guest speakers spoke to the assembled supporters. Kathy Oliver (Co director of International Brain Tumour Alliance) spoke about brain tumour patients, families and caregivers and the many challenges on the journey. Mr Stephen McNally (Neuro surgeon, Beaumont Hospital) addressed the packed room explaining where brain tumour treatment was at this current juncture in Ireland and where it hoped to be in the future. Liam Burke (Brain tumour survivor) recalled the shock and depression from the first diagnosis of his brain tumour to the positivity of attitude with which he used to take on the disease. He emphasised the importance of the love and support of family and those closest to you whilst undertaking this journey. And finally, Waterford native, Caroline Kane (Coordinator of Brain tumour support group in Cork and brain tumour survivor) spoke about the origins of the Irish Brain Tumour Support Group. She explained how she became involved in this group and the importance of having support groups. A very successful day concluded with a cup of tea and a chat amongst the assembled group that arrived as strangers and left as friends.
