Fort Dunree is helping to organise a charity cycle and walk in aid of Cancer Care West on Sunday 12th October. The event is being organised on behalf of popular former Fort Dunree staff member Alfie Mc Govern who received tremendous treatment and support from the facilities provided by Cancer Care West. Cancer Care West provides accommodation for families living outside of the Galway area who have a family member undergoing treatment at University Hospital Galway. All of Cancer Care West’s services are provided at no cost to patients and their families and the charity relies heavily on voluntary fundraising and donations to meet the cost of providing these services.
Alfie said: “The care and attention I received was second to none and they helped make a difficult situation a lot more manageable”.
There will be two cycles, 50km and 25km, starting off from Fort Dunree car park at 9.30am. There will also be a 5km walk starting off at the carpark at 10.30am.
Refreshments will be provided afterwards. Please come along and support this worthwhile cause.
€ 10.00 per cyclist and
€ 5.00 per walker. Cyclists must wear a helmet.
