Tuam Cancer Care are delighted to be once again holding The Survivor’s Celebration Walk in the Palace Grounds, Tuam, on Sunday 8th October at 2pm.
The walk gives us an opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors and their families and friends, in a lively, warm atmosphere, with music and entertainment. The event also reflects the support that people receive through our services, and at the same time raise much needed funds for the Centre.
The Walk will include teams of cancer survivors, their families/friends and supporters, walking 3 laps of the Palace Grounds, symbolising the journey that they are on together. Each team will be introduced with a few lines, that you can provide on registration if you wish, outlining the support you have received from Tuam Cancer Care. Cancer survivors have the option to wear a white t-shirt and their friends/family/team members to wear royal blue t-shirts. The Tuam Cancer Care volunteers wear green t-shirts. Individuals and groups of friends are also welcome to take part.
This walk is open to the general public too, so come along, learn more about the organisation and help raise funds by walking in hope and solidarity with those going through cancer treatment, living with cancer or in memory of someone special who you have lost.
T-shirts from previous years can be reused. If t-shirts are required they can be ordered on the registration form and collected from the Centre, Friday 6th October, 6pm – 8pm.
To participate please register by midnight, Thursday 5th October 2023. Registration for this event is FREE, but we do ask that you support it by donating or raising sponsorship. Once you have registered you will receive an email with a link where you can either donate or create a personalised fundraising page. Sponsorship cards are also available and can be requested on the registration form.
This event has become Tuam Cancer Care’s biggest fundraiser in the calendar and this year, more than ever, we need your help to support the cancer related services that the Centre offers.
“Tuam Cancer Care have been a great support to me & my family during the pandemic when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Even though the services were initially virtual, there was always a caring voice at the end of the phone, ready to offer advice & support as well as outlining the availability of relevant services They always returned calls & were quick to contact me about in person options once restrictions were lifted. Care and attention was always provided and the bit of “me time” I got from reflexology & massage was a welcome break. I always felt I was in a safe environment, in more ways than one in the treatment room. Thanks to all at Tuam Cancer Care”
