The first Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk takes place in Kinsale on Sunday 4th March 2012 at 2pm in aid of Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society.

As Brand Ambassador for the Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk, Cara O’Sullivan will lend her support on the day and will perform ‘Stand up and Fight’ to inspire walkers as they head off on the 10km route. There will be an earlier start time of 1:45pm for runners.

After the Walk, refreshments will be provided by the Kinsale Good Food Circle and jazz singer Sharon Crosbie, also a Brand Ambassador, will entertain everyone after the Walk, creating a party atmosphere in the Town Council Car Park on the Pier Road. It promises to be great day as every participant wears a Pink Ribbon Walk t-shirt and Kinsale shops and restaurants will ‘go pink’ for the weekend.

“We are delighted with the response from so many people and nearly all the Kinsale businesses to date. This is the first walk on the south coast and we are hoping to have 400 walkers on Sunday 4th March raising €40,000 for The Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer,” said Jackie Dawson, Chairperson, Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk Committee.

The Pink Ribbon Walk is a national fundraising initiative which organises sponsored charity walks in locations around the country in aid of Action Breast Cancer. The objective is to empower individuals and communities to increase breast cancer awareness, promote healthy living and raise funds for Action Breast Cancer through a fun and rewarding experience

Since 2009, The Pink Ribbon Walks in Kells, Co Meath and Ballina/Killaloe, Co Clare have raised €400,000 for Action Breast Cancer. The Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk hopes to add significantly to this figure in 2012.
