Run & Walk For Life 2018

Why not challenge yourself, get fit and healthy and at the same time raise funds for the Solas Cancer Support Centre. You can do all this by taking part in our annual Run and Walk for Life on Sunday 14th of October, 2018.

2018 marks a special year for this event as it is our 10th Anniversary. The first event took place in 2008 as part of the original Capital Development drive to build the Centre. This year there will be a new 10k route which participants can either walk or run. It’s a great fun event which everyone enjoys and is such an important part of our annual fundraising.


The Run and Walk for Life starts at 12.30pm and finishes in the People’s Park where all participants, their family members and friends are invited to join us for the Fun for Life. This year we hope that past participants will join us again and we also look forward to meeting lots of new participants.

For further information, please contact us on 051 304 604 or drop us an email

This year, the Centre celebrates its 7th year supporting those affected by Cancer in the South-east and each year the services are completely funded by public donations and fundraising events.
