Last year’s Delvin Tractor Run raised just short €3,500 for the Irish Cancer Society and organisers have been busy making final preparations ahead of this year’s run, which will take place on Sunday 13th July.
This year’s chosen cause will be C.R.O.S.S – a great charity which supports cancer research at St James’ Hospital and Trinity College, Dublin.
Once again, ALL ages, sizes and makes of tractor are welcome to join the leisurely 20 mile run through scenic Westmeath. Refreshments will be available along the way and the day will end with a BBQ, raffle and auction.
The registration fee is expected to be €20, but greater donations are welcomed and encouraged! To register your vehicle, please head to Delvin Cattle Mart from 10.30am. The run itself is expected to leave shortly after 12.30 and it is expected that this year’s route will include Delvin’s Main Street.
Please come along and show your support!
The mission of the registered charity C.R.O.S.S is to support Cancer Research and improve patient care at the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Trinity College and St. James’s Hospital. The charity does this through supporting the education and training of high quality medical and scientific students in their careers as young cancer researchers.
The charity also invests in laboratory equipment to drive translational research projects aimed at the prevention, understanding and treatment of various forms of cancer.
