Dip in the Nip - Sligo

The Dip in the Nip will take place on 24 June 2012 in Sligo, Clare, Cork and East Coast
The Dip in the Nip is a unique and fun way to raise money for cancer charities, and since it started in 2009 it has raised nearly €200,000. This year, the Dip in the Nip is partnering with the Oncology Unit in Sligo General Hospital, the Mid West Cancer Foundation in Limerick, the Mercy Hospital Foundation in Cork and the Research & Education Trust at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda. 50% of the monies raised at each Dip will stay with the local charity, with the balance going to a Scalp Cooler Fund (scalp coolers are pieces of equipment that minimise or prevent hair loss in chemotheraphy patients) and support projects for people post-cancer treatment.
