College Staff Become "Dancers for Cancer"

Griffith College staff attend TodayFM's Dare to Care event, "Be a Dancer for Cancer"

TodayFM's 'National Day of Dancing' was supported by participants across Ireland.

TodayFM's 2019 "Dare to Care" campaign asked supporters to become "Dancers for Cancer," and Griffith College staff members were more than happy to oblige. The main event, held at the National Stadium, featured TodayFM presenters Ian Dempsey, Dermot and Dave, Muireann O'Connell, Matt Cooper, Fergal D'Arcy and Louise Duffy, who put on their dancing shoes to benefit the Irish Cancer Society. Participants danced to Walk the Moon's "Shut Up and Dance," chosen by TodayFM listeners. More than 200 dance events were arranged across the country.

Several Griffith College staff members participated in the event, including Sinead Murphy, Deirdre Doherty, Britt Berentzen, Jane Leavey, Dimphne Ni Bhraonain, Rebecca Daly, Susan Gogan, Hannah Costello, Roisin Roberts, Conor O'Callaghan and Steven Roberts. Programme Director for Photography Sinéad Murphy (also leader of the Griffith College Dancer for Cancer cohort) said of the event, “It was great to see so many people, including Griffith staff, come together to bring such a positive energy to highlight a difficult subject matter. I was delighted to be part of the Griffith team supporting the event and look forward to hearing the final amount raised.”

Griffith College is grateful to all who participated in this wonderful event!
