Cancer Care West has announced that Síle Seoige will be supporting the charity in this year’s Connemara Marathon this April. The Newstalk broadcaster and Gaeilgeoir is organising a team of people including her sister Gráinne as well as chef Clodagh McKenna and models Roz Purcell and Rosanna Davison to take part in the marathon on April 7.
The Elverys Sports Connemara International Marathon is a marathon experience in a very scenic part of the west of Ireland. Comprising a half marathon, a full marathon, and a 39.3 mile ultra marathon, the event sells out months ahead and draws more than 4,000 people to Connemara and Galway each year.
Cancer Care West is a not for profit, west of Ireland registered charity, dedicated to supporting those whose lives have been affected by a cancer diagnosis. Cancer Care West's support centre offers a wide range of services. A five-day a week drop-in service is available, whereby people can call in without an appointment. Individual appointments are available for clinical and psychological counselling, information on benefits and entitlements, and reflexology and massage. A variety of courses is offered on topics including stress management, living with cancer, mindfulness, expressive art, and expressive writing.
