Three is a Magic Number

Triple triathalon success for the MERLYN team
raising funds for the Pink Ribbon Foundation

MERLYN Sprint Triathlon Series 2019

Members of the MERLYN team recently took part in three triathlons to raise nearly €2,000 for our #justareminder campaign as part of our partnership with the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Barry Hoyne, Annmarie Mullen, Jeffrey O’Donoghue and Steve Van Rooyen took on the triathlon challenges in Kilkenny, Limerick and Dungarvan. These sprint multisport races had three continuous and sequential endurance races and each consisted of a 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run.

What our #Justareminder Campaign is About

While showering is considered as one of the very best times for breasts to be checked for lumps, abnormalities and changes, in reality regular checking is usually forgotten or overlooked. We are initiating the “Just a reminder…” campaign to “harness the positive power that a daily shower can have in our lives”. The instantly recognisable Pink Ribbon symbol will be displayed on our shower enclosures and accompanied by point of sale material and information in bathroom showrooms in our bid to get the message across.
