Eight-year-old Ellie Dollard Hutchinson completed an amazing feat when she completed the Great Pink Run in Phoenix Park on Saturday, August 30, raising over €300 for cancer.
A few years ago Ellie’s dad became ill with cancer, but, thanks to a lot of love and a brave battle, he is now a strong cancer survivor.
Ellie fully understands the changes and effects the illness can have on people and those who love them. This remarkable child showed huge maturity and great determination by taking it upon herself to do the race.
Dressed all in pink on the day, and roping in her mum Carol Hutchinson and family friend Catherine Pearson, she finished the 5km race in just under 54 minutes.
