About Today FM's Dare to Care

Dare to Care

This year we are back with a bang and bigger than ever! As Dare to Care was such a huge success last year, we are delighted to be teaming up with Today FM again to help families across Ireland affected by cancer and we are delighted to have you on board too!

So here’s how it works: we are asking you and the Irish public to quite literally dare your friends and family to care, have some fun and a few laughs along the way. In doing so, you will be funding free cancer services and lifesaving research. You’ll be giving hope to those affected by cancer and their families.

Dare to Care is an Irish Cancer Society fundraising campaign in partnership with Today FM where, during the month of September, individuals across the country take on a Dare from friends, family and colleagues and raise money to support the Irish Cancer Society in the fight against cancer.
