of the Provision of Cancer Care Services for the People of West Clare!

 The sun may have set on an amazing day and another marathon, but as we look back on the achievements of the group over the past twenty years; from the provision of funding for palliative care in Ennistymon General Hospital and in Regina House in Kilrush, to its daily support services such as transport for chemotherapy and radiotherapy appointments, counselling, complementary therapies, pilgrimage funding, and the provision of palliative aids for patients' home use - we realise that the fight continues and the work goes on.  Because it needs to.  By 2020, 1 in 2 of us will be affected by cancer.  A sobering thought and an unfortunate reality.

What has been achieved by the inhabitants of West Clare Communities uniting and working together, forging their own paths in achieving and retaining these vital services for West Clare is nothing short of extraordinary - so take a bow, each and everyone of you - the life-blood of the West Clare Mini Marathon, without whose generosity of spirit and tireless endeavours we could not exist.  The beating heart of any charity is its foot soldiers - the unsung heroes who take one dimensional ideals on paper and turn them into 3D living reality.

To each and everyone of you, thank you sincerely for your commitment and dedication to the West Clare Mini Marathon Cancer Care Centre.
