Relay Thanks

 

We’re having a get-together on Monday September 12th to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who helped in any way to make Relay 2016 such a success.

We will also be making the formal cheque presentation to the Irish Cancer Society. Looking forward to seeing our survivors, caregivers, teams, entertainers, volunteers, sponsors, therapists, LYIT staff, ponytail donators, hairdressers and all the members of the public who supported Relay in any way.

The get together takes place at the Mount Errigal Hotel at 7.30.

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.

Relay is all about:-

  • Celebrate
    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.
  • Remember
    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.

Relay For Life is a community based initiative in support of the Irish Cancer Society’s mission to eliminate cancer in Ireland. For further details on the activities of the Irish Cancer Society go to www.cancer.ie
