Requirements:Interest in Supporting Irish Cancer Society through Challenge Fundraising

Description

The Irish Cancer Society's Relay for Life is a fundraising event that brings communities together to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors, to remember those lost to the disease. It is also a chance to fight back by increasing our knowledge of cancer and raising money to fund life-saving cancer research and free services for cancer patients and their loved ones.

Relay for Life TU Dublin Challenge

The challenge is to Run/Walk 155 km in March, which works out at about 5km per day. It's completely up to you how fast you go and what routes you take. All that matters is that you post the distances to your Team/Individual Just Giving pages daily/weekly. This challenge is open to all TU Dublin students, staff, family, and friends. All those that register will be put into a draw for 5 x €50 One4All Vouchers taking place on 9 March 2021.

How to track your kilometres

The best way is to use an app on your phone to track your km and then post screenshots of your km to your Just Giving page; you can download Map My Run/Strava or a similar app. Otherwise, a Fitbit or activity tracker will also work.

How to raise funds

Individuals and teams will raise funds through sponsorship of the challenge and by selling Candles of Hope Bags; these candles are to remember those who have passed away, to celebrate those who have survived and those fighting cancer.

Is training provided?: No
