Walker Rob Heffernan set for Baltinglass fundraiser

World champion walker Rob Heffernan will be in Baltinglass on October 27 as part of Centra's Let's Walk initiative.

The campaign is to raise much needed funds for the Irish Cancer Society's Action Breast Cancer programme.

The walk will be a 10km walk starting at Fisher's of Baltinglass at 12 noon. There will be a fun day of activity in Baltinglass to mark the occasion with plenty of refreshments and entertainment.

Fisher's is one of six Centra's across Wicklow taking part in the campaign and there will also be events organised by Centra, Rathdrum, Morrin's Centra, Dunlavin, Gould's Centra, Kilcoole, McKenna's Centra, Roundwood and Power's Centra, Rathnew.

Rob encouraged everyone in Wicklow to take part saying breast cancer had touched the lives of so many people. 'Not only will you be raising awareness for breast cancer in Ireland and contributing to the fundraising but it is also a great way to stay active and get involved in your local community.'
