Being diagnosed with cancer is a challenging time for anyone, as well as for their family and friends. We have all known someone who has been affected by cancer, indeed in the past number of years some our family members and friends have been diagnosed with cancer which has created the spark for this event in the hope that we may contribute towards a cure for cancer.
Roundstone For Fun was set up by friends of the village of Roundstone with the dual purpose of raising money for Cancer Research and for the development of the Roundstone Community Centre. Last year we raised an incredible total of €12,132. All funds raised are divided between the two above-mentioned causes.
We know that breast cancer research has improved the diagnosis, treatment options, and outcomes for those who develop the disease. We want to fund these research programmes to continue to impact the outcomes for those who develop the disease in the future.
The research team, in collaboration with universities and hospitals across the globe, focuses on the development and improvement of diagnostic techniques and treatment strategies, to drive real and measurable improvement in clinical outcomes for breast cancer patients.
With your help we can positively impact the future for women in Ireland
In recent years Roundstone Community centre has enjoyed a facelift to the tune of €240,000. Improvements to the car park, landscaping and the side garden are particularly striking. This was made possible through fundraising from Tour de Bog and other events held throughout the year with further assistance from Government Grants. Roundstone For Fun wants to continue this good work and we want to see the Community Centre being enhanced and to become a inspiring place to hold events.
Why the name Roundstone For Fun – (RFF) – We want to try and bring the two together by having fun events to raise money for two wonderful causes.
