Our Pink Partners
Supporting people across Ireland affected by breast cancer.
Some of Ireland’s leading businesses are becoming official Pink Partners of the Society in their support in the fight against breast cancer. These companies are joining forces to raise awareness and much needed funds for people affected by breast cancer across Ireland in tandem with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
All money donated by this year’s generous ‘Pink Partners’ will go to the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer programme which provides breast cancer information and support services to thousands of women and men across Ireland each year.
Receiving less than 5% of income from government funding, the Irish Cancer Society rely on public support and the backing of organisations like our ‘Pink Partners’ to fund vital services.
The 2017 corporate ‘Pink Partners’ will all be doing something different to help people affected by breast cancer across Ireland.
