About Cancer Society

This society raises money and awareness for the Irish Cancer Society throughout the academic year here in Maynooth! We run a number of small events each semester including bake sales, table quizzes etc leading up to 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 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.
