Big turnout in the Hope & Dream 10k

By Dan Walsh

Over 1,000 runners and walkers turned out in ideal conditions for the annual Hope & Dream 10k which took place on The Promenade, Enniscorthy, this morning.

Some took their babies in buggies and others brought their canine friends. The atmosphere was full of fun, achievement, and, of course, a major fundraiser for the Hope Cancer Support Centre on Weafer Street.

About 150 volunteers were involved ensuring a safe route for the participants who travelled out towards the Davidstown area and back again.

The event was supported by An Garda Siochána, Enniscorthy branch of the Red Cross, Slaney Search & Rescue, G.H. Lett & Co supplied bottles of water and sponsored the main stage and after refreshments were provided in the Riverside Park Hotel.

The Hope Cancer Support Centre was founded on Easter week 1999 and its mission “is to provide our services free of charge to all who need our support. All this is only possible with the huge support of the public, through fundraising and volunteering.”
