Thurles GET BACK Challenge To Tackle Cancer

The Get BACK Challenge brings businesses together to contribute in tackling the problems of cancer and addressing the issues of obesity among young people though encouraging and facilitating sports participation.
The Focus Consulting organized Get BACk Challenge is now in its fifth year of operation having started in 2006. An annual charity cycle and walk are the main fundraising drivers in addition to attracting corporate support from businesses throughout the region.

This year a team is being put together from Thurles, who are hoping that a group of 12 from the area will take part in either the 10k run or walk.

Last year, as a group we raised a great deal of funds for Suir Haven, and these funds will be presented in the coming weeks. The Thurles organisers hope to at least match last years amount and hopefully make a lot more. They are organising a fundraiser in Milleas (Castle Tavern) on Friday the 17th of June 2011 starting at 8.00pm.

Paud Gleeson will be playing the best of 80’s and 90’s music with some good party games. There will be a raffle with some great prizes and finger food will be provided.

So go on folks , show your support. Register Here now.
