Hope and Dream Cancer Support CentreMeet Bob- Raising Funds for the Hope & Dream 10 2018

The Hope Cancer Support Centre offers amazing support services to cancer patients and their families throughout the county. The Hope & Dream 10 is now in its 7th year. This event raises much needed funds to support the running of the Hope Cancer Support Centre, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford. This year the funds raised will be shared with Friends of Wexford General Hospital for their MRI Now appeal and Hospice Homecare.

Marie Bohan is the wife of our Quality & IMS Officer Jim. She was selected as one of  this years Hope & Dream leaders and is doing a fantastic job in highlighting the event as she prepares to complete it on Sunday 8th April. She baked “Bob” to raise funds to purchase the popular wristbands given to everyone who takes part. (her talents know no limits!)

AirconMech is delighted to support Marie as one of this years leaders.

Meet Bob

Bob wants to wear his purple & gold tshirt on April 8th & do the Hope & Dream 10 2018.  He’s a little nervous as, let’s face it, he’s getting on in years, he doesn’t have the longest of legs & he’s not really in good shape anymore!! He has been training & dieting but has been struggling along the way. He came last in his first time trial & didn’t do great in the Enniscorthy 10k. But Kevin the trainer said ” Don’t mind all them others, you’re only up against yourself ” & ” everyone has to start somewhere” Bob listens to Kevin cause he was an army trainer!! Martina the nutritionist said ” you’re doing better than anyone sitting on the sofa” & ” you’re out doing something for all those people who need us, think of those people in the Hope Cancer Support Centre who can’t come out & run or walk, they’d love to be in your position” So Bob was motivated & kept training & he’s going to line out on April 8th & do the 10k in the very best time he can do & he knows the supporters on the route will keep him going.

Meanwhile he’s a raffle prize in the Hope & Dream 10 promotional fair this Saturday, 10th March in the Astro Active Centre, Bellefield in Enniscorthy from 2 till 6pm to raise money for the cool wristbands that everyone receives. We urge everyone to come along and support the fundraiser.
