The annual Karen Fenton Memorial Run was hosted in Ballinora, Waterfall on March 3rd, 2024. This event has been organised since the 1st anniversary of Karen's death in 2018. This is a 5km road race organised and hosted by the Fenton Family in memory of Karen who passed away in April 2017, aged 43.

The event was a huge success attracting registrations of over 400. There was a fantastic turnout in the hall after for post-race refreshments. The event raised over €5k which will be put towards ovarian cancer research and services. The specific details will be worked out later.

We have made great progress over the past few years to honor Karen's legacy. Our fundraising efforts culminated in the purchase of a cancer sequencing machine for CUH where Karen spent much of the final 2 years of her life.

Since this machine is now commissioned and in use, we are actively looking at beneficiaries for our more recent fundraising that will help to honour Karen's legacy and support cancer treatment and services.

Thanks to everyone who has supported our fund over the past few years.
