relay for life

Relay for Life fundraiser
Thursday, March 15 @ 6pm – Friday, March 16 @ 6am
Kingfisher Gym, NUI Galway
€10 to participate
All welcome!

This year NUIG’s fourth annual Relay for Life will take place in aid of the Irish Cancer Society, after the success of previous years in raising over €21,000!

The relay involves teams of 5-20 people taking turns running/walking/jogging around a track for 12 hours as funds are raised for the charities.

At different times throughout the night there will be events such as the survivors lap, competitions to win amazing prizes, themed laps, movie screenings, candle of hope ceremony, lots of food and a variety of different performances.

The organisers will have teams representing students and staff from all areas and faculties of the college, along with people from the community.

It’s open to anybody at any age.

Registration for this year’s Relay is now open, so sign up online here!

There will also be tables set up around campus between now and the event for registration or to answer any questions you may have.

Registration is only €10 per person, which includes food and a Relay t-shirt.

The registration fee can be paid at the sign up tables around campus or online with the link above.

Even if you’re not part of a team, feel free to come to the event to cheer on the teams and donate!
