Press Release.

On Saturday next the 5th of October 2013, the Galway GAA/Cancer Care West ‘walk for life, walk for health’ event will take place across Galway City & County.

The partnership between Galway GAA and Cancer Care West is a unique opportunity to educate and increases awareness around cancer related topics and through the involvement with the GAA, this message will reach a much wider audience.

Over the past two years this event has raised €280,000 split on a 50/50 basis between Cancer Care West and Galway GAA. The 50% share for the GAA is divided between Galway football and hurling teams training fund, (25%) and the remaining 25% for GAA clubs in the Galway.

This event, which is supported by Supervalu Supermarkets, involves all clubs in Galway who have organised walks in their own locality with the support of Cancer Care West personnel. Each walk will start at 11am in each local area and sponsorship cards have been issued to all clubs and walk coordinators.

Galway GAA and Cancer Care West earnestly ask your support for this initiative, support that will help to build on the outstanding success in the two previous years.
