Race Notice - Emer Casey 10k Charity Race...Sun 22nd May 2011

This charity 10km road race and walk takes place on Sunday in the town of Youghal in East Cork at 1:30pm. The is the 5th year of this event and it's purpose is to raise funds for cancer research. You can find out more about the Emer Casey Foundation at this link...

Registration...If you are coming from Cork and as you approach Youghal, stay on the bypass. At the top of the hill, take the 1st left. You then go left again, cross over the bridge over the bypass and head in towards Youghal. (If you are coming from Waterford, take the bypass and at the highest point, take the slip road left before the bridge. Proceed towards Youghal). As you head towards Youghal, you'll see the Pobalscoil na Trionoide school where you register for the race. Seeing as how this is a charity event, the entry fee is €20 (free t-shirt included in the entry fee).

Last year was the first time I was able to do this race. As a Cancer survivor, I'm biased, but I'm urging everyone to enter this event, both to help fund the fight against Cancer and also to show support for the Emer Casey Foundation and those faced with Cancer in their daily lives.

Professor O'Leary's Ph.D. students, funded by the Emer Casey Foundation, have done ground-breaking work in Cancer research. YOUR entry fees, donations and sponsorship make a difference!

...besides all that, it's a great race and I enjoyed both it and the fine fare afterwards!
