Only a few weeks to go for the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group 10k/Half MarathonMarch 4, 2019 ADMIN 0
One of the big events on Balbriggan’s calendar is the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group 10k/Half Marathon. Each year hundreds of athletes turn out to walk or run the 10k and to run the half marathon. The event has grown year on year and this year there is a new set up, providing each runner a chance to see their moment of glory as they pass the finish line when they check up on their results!
Balbriggan Cancer Support Group provides a great service to the many people who’s lives have been affected by cancer. As a result of the people who take part in this event and the many people who help to raise funds throughout the year the centre was able to provide many services free of charge as a result, from bra fitting, reflexology, aromatherapy, wig fitting, and to lend an ear when someone just needed to chat. There is a small fee for the professional counseling which is also subsidized by the centre.

Balbriggan Cancer Support Group is open 3 days a week and anyone who wants to pop in for chat and find out more about the services that they provide is welcome to to call in. They endeavor to preserve dignity and privacy of the person at all times.
Cancer has affected many families and this vital service can make a big difference so Balbriggan Cancer Support Group would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has fund raised and supported us throughout the year and we look forward to seeing all the runners, walkers, supporters and volunteers on ☘ St. Patrick’s Day
