Relay For Life is a community-based initiative in support of the Irish Cancer Society and their work in patient support and research. Relay is a 24-hour team fundraising event.
The event is based around a walking track and at all times during the event, at least one person from each team is walking on the track. Each team has a cancer awareness theme which they promote at their team base. As part of their fundraising efforts, the teams can also run fundraising events on the day if they wish.
Relay For Life represents the hope that those who have lost their lives to cancer, will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will always be supported and that one day we will live in a cancer-free world.
Relay is all about:-
During our opening Survivor lap, we celebrate cancer
survivors from our community and their successes in recovering from or living with cancer, Survivors are a beacon of hope to us all.
During the Candle Of Hope ceremony at dusk, we remember those from our community lost to cancer and to inspire those still undergoing treatment
- Fight Back
This is about the community reducing their risk of cancer by promoting healthy eating, active lifestyles, quitting smoking and encouraging their friends and family to seek advice if worried about cancer symptoms.
