Pat Smullen presented the cheque to doctors in St.Vincents Hospital in Dublin.
Offaly's nine time former champion flat jockey Pat Smullen presented a €100,000 cheque to doctors in St Vincent’s University Hospital, Dublin to fund a state-of-the-art next generation sequencing machine.
The money was raised at last September’s Longines Irish Champions Weekend which culminated in the Pat Smullen Champions Race for Cancer Trials Ireland at the Curragh.
When handing over the donation, Smullen said he's delighted the generosity that people showed and is looking forward to seeing more opportunities for people with pancreatic cancer open up very soon.
I’ve been working with @cancertrials_ie to best manage the wonderful donations raised @IrishChampsWknd. I’m delighted €100k has been allocated to St Vincent’s for a next generation sequencing machine to enhance diagnosis & management of pancreatic cancer https://t.co/KReVI4Gpxi pic.twitter.com/cznZf4qtPR— Pat Smullen (@patjsmullen) July 6, 2020
