Breast Cancer Research & The Galway Races

Sunday 25th October 2020

As part of the October Festival, on Sunday 25th we will host a dedicated fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research Ireland (BCRI). The team at Galway Racecourse are proud to be working with Professor Michael Kerins and his dedicated team at BCRI to organise this event virtually as we continue to race behind closed doors.  By partnering with BCRI we will be supporting the research team at NUIG to improve breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. More information will be announced very soon.
