Donegal Airport will be flying high on behalf of the North West Cancer Support Group when four of its employees take to the roads in Dublin’s Pheonix Park this weekend to take part in a 10k event.

The four, Denis Forker, Eamon Friel, Donal Curran and Liam McFadden, work with the airport’s fire services and Air Traffic Control divisions.They’ll be among a huge participation in the Pheonix Park run on Sunday next.

All proceeds from their efforts will go to the North West Cancer Support Group fund which helps patients and their families with the travel costs to and from Dublin with Aer Arann.

“This flight is only fifty minutes and is of great benefit for patients especially when they were undergoing treatment for cancer,” said Donegal Airport Marketing Manager, Pauline Sweeney.

Donation sheets are located in local businesses, shops and pubs. “The lads are delighted to be associated with this cause as we all know there are not many homes in Donegal that have not been affected by this,” added Pauline.
