Your Run and Walk for Life …… Your Way
October 9th to 11th 2020
Our 2020 event will be like no other as we make plans for our main annual fundraiser. We have adapted our services to clients due to COVID 19 and we have also adapted our plans for this year’s Run and Walk for Life.
The event this year will be a virtual one and it is YOUR Run and Walk for Life-YOUR way. You get to choose your distance, your route, your day and the time you would like to undertake YOUR own challenge.
In the interest of safety our priority is to minimise numbers in our Centres and so we have an online registration system and the link can be found below. The registration fee is a minimum €25 per adult and €15 per child and this fee includes our iconic orange t-shirt. We hope that runners and walkers might be able to make an additional donation or alternatively download a sponsorship card and raise extra funds.
With no Government funding the service in 2019 was 96% funded by public donations and this huge community effort allows us to sustain the service each year. We are extremely thankful to our event partners- UPMC Whitfield Hospital and Beat. Beat is a long-time sponsor and friend and with UPMC Whitfield Hospital joining us as headline sponsor for their first year we offer them a warm welcome- it’s great to have you on board!
We hope to encourage our family and friends all over the world who haven’t been able to make it back to Waterford this year to do the Run for Life in our new UPMC sponsored t-shirts in Sydney, Shanghai, San Francisco or wherever in world they are.
Thank you for your continued support of the Solas Cancer Support Centre and we look forward to seeing roads and parks all over Waterford, Ireland and beyond turn orange in October.
