We won't stop until cancer does

Relay for Life Ennis

Relay For Life is a 24-hour community celebration which honours all those who are affected by cancer. At Relay For Life, whole communities come together united against cancer to Celebrate life, Remember loved ones lost to the disease, and Fight Back against cancer by raising awareness about cancer prevention as well as raising funds to support the Irish Cancer Society's mission to stop cancer.

Funds raised by Relay For Life support life-saving cancer research, as well as provide support and care for cancer patients and their families in every community in Ireland.

Ennis held it's first Relay for Life event on 23 June 2018 and it was an instant success.

Over 500 people gathered in Tim Smythe Park in Ennis united in the fight against cancer and in 2019 these numbers more than doubled. Check out our Facebook page for a more detailed plan on events closer to the date.

If you have any questions or concerns about cancer, please make sure to contact the Cancer Nurseline on their freephone number 1800 200 700 or visit www.cancer.ie.
