During the month of October, the Irish Cancer Society relies on people across Ireland to hold a Pink event to raise vital life-saving funds and support breast cancer research and support services.
This month Cpl turned pink to support the Irish Cancer Society 'Paint it Pink' campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness month and to raise awareness of all types of cancer among employees.
Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness
To support Breast Cancer Awareness, we invited a community nurse from the Marie Keating Foundation to our HQ to give a cancer awareness & wellness workshop for men and women.
The aim of this talk was to inform employees on how you to make simple changes that will reduce the risk of cancer and what the main risk factors and symptoms are.
Deborah Crilly, Cpl Director, also spoke at the event and shared her cancer story. The morning was streamed across all offices and funds were raised for the Irish Cancer Society.
