BOOTS NIGHTWALK – 31st AUGUST

boots walk irish cancerThe Irish Cancer Society Night Nursing Service offers free end of life care to cancer patients, allowing them to remain in their own homes at the end of their cancer journey surrounded by loved ones.   This service depends on donations from the public and through the generous support of Boots Night Walks, which consist of 5 km walks completed by Boots colleagues, family and friends. Through the walks, Boots Ireland aim to increase awareness, promote prevention and support people living with cancer in Ireland.
In addition to the Night Walks, this year Boots have introduced honour tags for the walk which are on sale in-store for €2. Customers can purchase a tag in memory of someone who has passed away from or survived cancer. One meter of the course will be walked in honour of that person.  To date they’ve raised nearly €900,000 for the Irish Cancer Society in the partnership and hope to reach €1 million before year end, equating to over 2,850 nights of night nursing care.
