  • With 150 Salesforce hikers.
  • On 1 amazing day for Breakthrough Cancer Research
  • And to date they have raised €13,500. You can help them raise more here.

THE COMMON THREAD

Organiser Ed Hurrell says: “I chose to support Breakthrough Cancer Research with this event because in recent years cancer has taken two people in my wider family. Also from organising this event the past two years, I learned that so many of my colleagues families’ had been affected too”.

“Sadly, most families are affected by cancer in some way. Current statistics say that 1 in 2 of us will get cancer at some point in our lives. By helping this charity to research innovative ways to increase cancer survival rates, we can play our part in ensuring a brighter outlook for ourselves and our loved ones”.
