The Irish Cancer Society in Mayo launched its 2014 trek destinations with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny. The treks which will raise money for cancer research include exciting destinations such as the Himalayas, the Grand Canyon, and Mount Kilimanjaro.
An Taoiseach Enda Kenny said at the launch: “Having conquered Kilimanjaro myself in 2003, I am familiar with the scale of preparation and effort that goes into such a challenge. However, I also know the sense of achievement and satisfaction that comes from its completion. The Irish Cancer Society does really wonderful work and I am certain that this thought will help to get all trekkers and climbers through the tough times that may lie ahead on their particular journey.”
