About Cancer Society

Welcome to Maynooth Cancer Society!

Our aim is to raise money and awareness for cancer charities across Ireland throughout the academic year here in Maynooth! We run many events each semester including our annual Turn Maynooth Pink, bake sales, collaborations, table quizzes, shave or dye events..all in a bid to create a community that shares a passion for fundraising. 

Our main event of the year the Relay for Life. The Relay is a 24-hour annual event in which a number of teams sign up with at least one member walking along a designated track for the entire 24 hours. There are different events and entertainment every hour and the event is always a great day's craic and a fulfilling experience for everyone that takes part.

We know every student and staff member in Maynooth has experienced the effects of cancer at some point in their lives and our goal is to raise as much money, awareness and support as possible each year. We welcome and strongly encourage new members every year and we can guarantee the fulfilment you experience is one of a kind.

We Won't Give Up Until Cancer Does.
