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.
