We have launched a new fundraising event called ‘Run Walk & Roll for cancer research’.
We are inviting communities across Ireland to run, walk and roll in just about anything with wheels - scooters, skateboards, wheelchairs, prams, bikes - as long as it doesn’t have an engine.
Not only will you help support cancer research, but you will also bring your friends and families together for a great, fun day out!
Simply pick a date and a venue for your event and get your family, friends and co-workers on board. We have a range of fundraising materials to help you promote your event such as posters, T-shirts and certificates for your participants.
Once you have registered with us, our local Community Fundraiser will contact you and provide you with lots of advice to support you in your fundraising.
So, whether you’re walking, running or rolling we really appreciate your support!
Each year in Ireland, there are over 20,000 new cases of cancer. Research is helping to identify the causes of cancer and to improve methods of diagnosis and treatment. Since 1963, we have invested over €22 million from voluntary donations into hundreds of innovative research projects. These projects have contributed enormously to our understanding of cancer, how it develops and how to treat different forms of the disease. Our research has led to over 650 discoveries. Each of these new findings has been published in international peer reviewed journals, making this knowledge available to researchers worldwide.
The funds you raise are crucial so we can continue to support this vital work. Find out more about our cancer research.
The Irish Cancer Society Research Fellowship will allow me to establish myself as a forerunner in the field of cancer specific immune responses in Ireland, and will give me the opportunity to translate my research from bench to bedside.
