All proceeds go to Irish Cancer Society initially and then filter back to Kildare patients through a number of services provided by I C S such as the Night Nursing service, Care to Drive, much needed research and many more.
Relay brings communities and families together over the 24 hours to Celebrate those who have survived cancer, Remember those who have died from this disease and now continue the Fight Back with lots of fun, laughter and exchanges of experiences and the highlight of the weekend is the Candle of Hope Ceremony which takes place at dusk on the Saturday when the many thousands of candles in their bags are lit and the messages on the bags indicate the poignancy of Relay.
Chairperson of Relay, Amy Mahon, looks forward to welcoming everyone especially new teams from parts of the County not represented before and Amy can be contacted at 085 1362373.
