Special thanks to Aer Lingus for promoting breast awareness and raising funds in support of Breast Cancer Research through several initiatives during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Flight crews on all Aer Lingus European flights traveling to and from Dublin, Shannon, and Cork had a special Breast Cancer Research collection during the week of October 19. Some pilots wore pink epaulettes in place of the standard uniform gold colour. And, 30 inspiring staff members took part in the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon on Monday, October 26 to benefit Breast Cancer Research.
The combined fundraising activities raised an incredible €51, 500 for Breast Cancer Research!
Christine Costelloe, Development Director, thanked everyone involved – “We are deeply grateful for the incredible generosity of the Aer Lingus team. I was fortunate to experience their fundraising in action and was impressed with their tremendous energy and enthusiasm. The team’s support will advance research in the areas of personalised medicine, breast regeneration, and innovative diagnostics and therapeutics.”
