The inaugural Survivors Celebration Walk proved to be a huge success. This year we hope to build on last year’s success and make it bigger and better. This year the Walk will take place at 2pm on Sunday, 8th October in The Palace Grounds, Tuam. The Walk will include teams of cancer survivors, their families/friends and supporters, any member of the team can be team leader. Individuals and groups of friends are also welcome to take part.
This year we are giving teams options on how they raise sponsorship i.e.
- Sponsorship cards
- Running small events, e.g. coffee mornings, cake sales etc.
- On-line fundraising, e.g. iDonate.ie, justgiving.com
- Any combination of the above
The aim of the event is to create a lively, warm atmosphere, celebrating cancer survivors and their friends/family. We also aim to reflect the caring support that people receive through our services, with music and entertainment, and at the same time raise much needed funds for the Centre.
In addition to the Walk we will again be having a tree planting remembrance ceremony where people can tie ribbons to our newly planted tree in memory of people they have lost through cancer. Ribbons can be purchased on the day for €2.
To participate please register by midnight, Wednesday 27th September 2017. Registration is FREE. Sponsorship cards, if requested will be provided on registration.
