Pink Ribbon Walk 2013






Pink Ribbon Walk takes place in the beautiful lakeside towns of Ballina/Killaloe on Sunday June 9. The Pink Ribbon Walk, now in its 4th year, brings together women and men, young and young at heart, to walk together in aid of Action Breast Cancer. Last year the Killaloe Pink Ribbon Walk was a huge success raising over €73,000, a huge contribution to the €700,000 that has been raised nationally since 2009.  This year organisers are hoping that the message of the Pink Ribbon Walk – “Will you walk with us?” will be as true as ever and attract even more walkers to this annual event. Patron of the Pink Ribbon Walk, Barbara McMahon, speaking at the launch said “The Pink Ribbon Walk is a chance for the community to walk together and show the true spirit of what can happen when we all use our energy in a positive way. This is one of the biggest events in the area and it is a joy to see families, friends and loved ones uniting for this very special and memorable day”. The Pink Ribbon Walk is a 10km sponsored walk which raises money for Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society, who in turn fund breast cancer research, help people to cope with a diagnosis and help support patients, friends and families through the National Cancer Helpline (1800 200 700) and local cancer support centres. Registration is open now.  To register for the event and find out more information, simply visit
