Relay For Life

  • Cancer survivors are the guests of honour at Relay For Life & are invited to walk the first lap spreading the message of hope to all affected by cancer
  • At sundown every Relay For Life event pauses to remember those lost from cancer in the community in a moving Candle of Hope ceremony
  • Through Relay we communicate the support services that are available for cancer patients & encourage the community to make lifestyle choices to reduce their risk of cancer

Relay For Life is a 24 hour event that brings the whole community together to Celebrate the lives of cancer survivors, Remember those lost to the disease and Fight Back by increasing knowledge of cancer and raising money to fund vital research and services of the Irish Cancer Society.

Watch videos from around the country and the world, showcasing the communities that hold Relay For Life events.
