The Pink Camino

Wednesday, 08 January, 2020

Planned as a special celebration of life post breast cancer, our 'Pink Camino' takes place from 16th to 23rd May with a special focus on participants taking part in support of the Breast Clinic Appeal.

If you, or some one close to you, has been a patient of Beaumont Hospital's Breast Care Service, we're inviting you to come and join us on this six day walking challenge covering the last 115km of the French way in Northern Spain. If you were treated in Beaumont, it's a great way to bookend your breast cancer experience and do something to help patients of the future.

When you decide to take part in this walking challenge you'll also benefit from the unique holistic element which we are incorporating on the trip with instructor-led morning yoga and evening meditation sessions (which are optional) to help you feel centred and prepared for our daily hikes. Our trip is open to anyone of any age who can walk an average of 20kms daily with training walks organised at weekends before we depart so that everyone gets the opportunity to meet up and get in some pre-Camino kilometres!
