Stars of RTE’s Young Offenders, PJ Gallagher, Chris Walley and Alex Murphy recently launched the Irish Cancer Society’s 2018 Colour Dashes.
This year's charity 5k run is sponsored by Aldi Ireland for a third year in a row.
All money raised is used to support cancer patients and to fund vital cancer research.
“Staff across our 130 Irish stores are gearing up to make this year’s Colour Dash a success, having already raised over €600,000 since 2016 to help provide essential services for people affected by cancer,” says Finbar McCarthy, group buying director Aldi Ireland.
The family run will take place in four locations this year, including a new location in Limerick.
Locations for 2018 are: NUI Galway, 10 June, Phoenix Park Dublin, 17 June, University of Limerick, 23 June and Pairc Uí Chaoimh, Cork on 24 June.
PJ Gallagher said, “Colour Dash is a fantastic opportunity for families in Ireland to enjoy a fun day out, while helping the 40,000 people who will get a cancer diagnosis this year.”
