IT Sligo are teaming up with Dip in the Nip and the Radisson Blu to hold a fundraising event that will take place on World Health Day Sunday April 7th. The event entitled “Healthy Today Happy Tomorrow” will focus on fun alternatives for a healthy lifestyle, focusing on the dos rather than the don’ts in living a happy, healthy life.
The event will include guest speakers, Maire Garvey organiser of Dip in the Nip, Gabriel MacSharry Nutritionist and Medical Herbalist and Miriam Cunningham and Aileen Cooper from Fitness4All. A number of stallholders will be on site from a number of healthy and wellbeing businesses in the NW providing information, free samples and advice to attendees including the Sligo Yoga, Good4U, Sligo Artspsychotheraphy, Eithna O Sullivan will be providing tasty seaweed smoothies and attendees will also be treated to delicious guilt free goodies.
All proceeds on the day will go to the Dip in the Nip which is a charity event that supports cancer patients with an exciting number of dips along the Altlantic sea coast of Ireland every year and in particular this event will support a scalp cooler fund. Scalp Coolers are pieces of equipment that at least minimise and often prevent hair loss in chemotherapy patients. The Dip purchased its first Scalp Cooler in 2011, which was only the 16th one in Ireland. Some of the reasons there are so few are because hair loss is not a recognised medical condition and because of their cost (each Scalp Cooler costs approximately €22,000). It is one of the aims of the Dip that within 5 years every single chemotherapy patient who wants access to a scalp cooler shall have it.
Join us on Sunday 7th April at the Radisson Blu from 2-5pm for what promises to be a fun informative afternoon.
Tickets are priced at €10 and are available on the day or by calling Ashling 0876252190 or Jemma 0858385747
