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 the cancer will always be supported and that one day we will live in a cancer free world.
From 5pm on Sat June 2nd – 5pm on Sun June 3rd thousands of people will gather and participate in a 24-hour relay at LYIT, Letterkenny to celebrate people who have survived a cancer diagnosis, to remember those lost to the disease and brings the community together to Fight Back against cancer.
In 2017, the event raised over €100,000 which was used to fund an Irish Cancer Society research project at Letterkenny University Hospital – a phenomenal achievement by all involved!!
The Relay really is an event for all the family, young and old and is a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience.
