Torch of Hope
October 2019 - Date TBC
At the heart of this event is the idea that it gives families, friends and communities who have been affected by cancer a chance to unite and to honour lost loved ones. Please join our fundraising event during October 2019 at 4.30pm and help ARC Cancer Support Centres to continue its vital work.
This community event will see teams of people starting the walk at 4.30pm from the entrance of Blackrock Park on the Southside and The Wooden Bridge, Dollymount on the Northside. Northside will meet Southside on the Sean O'Casey Bridge at approximately 6pm. The closing ceremony will be followed by entertainment with surprise celebrity appearances at the CHQ building in the IFSC.
"The Torch of Hope Relay is just one of those very special occasions, which touches you to your core. There's such a sense of camaraderie, of us all being in this together, of everyone wanting the very best for each other. If you were feeling down before the Torch of Hope Relay, you'll be feeling a thousand times better afterwards - it's hugely inspiring and uplifting. For all those of us who have survived cancer, it's about grabbing life by the bootstraps and living it to the full. I would encourage people to lend their support in whatever way they can" - Alison Kelly, Cancer Survivor and this year's Torch holder
