THE CLARE ECHO has been announced as the media partner for this year’s Relay for Life Ennis.

The two-day event, taking place on June 17 and 18 in Ennis, is a unique and beautiful opportunity to celebrate those that have survived cancer, remember loved ones lost to cancer, and to stand shoulder to shoulder with those battling cancer. Funds raised at Relay enable the Irish Cancer Society to continue its life-saving work.

Editor of The Clare Echo, Stuart Holly commented, “I would like to encourage local businesses, community groups and families to show their support for this incredible initiative.

“The Clare Echo is proud to partner with Relay For Life, yet again. Almost every family in Clare has been touched by cancer and the Relay for Life not only raises funds and awareness for such vital services, but it is also a wonderful way to support families in our community going through a difficult time in their lives”.

Chair of Relay for Life Ennis Auriol Considine said, “We are thrilled to have The Clare Echo on board for this event. The Clare Echo and so many other businesses around Ennis have been extremely generous with their support of this event”.

All cancer survivors are invited to attend the Cancer Survivors’ Reception and the Survivors’ Lap of Honour which opens Relay for Life Ennis on June 17 at 2pm in Tim Smythe Park, Ennis.

While teams and people from the community walk the track over a 24 hour period, a festival of fun and entertainment takes place. Funds raised at Relay enables the Irish Cancer Society to continue its life saving work. A feature of every Relay For Life is the Candle of Hope ceremony which takes place at dusk.

Before the event, everyone in the community is invited to dedicate a Candle of Hope bag to someone they know who has been touched by cancer. Hundreds of candle bags that have been personalised with messages of hope and remembrance are lit during a moving ceremony involving music and speeches.

To register a team, register as a survivor, donate or find out more about the event, visit or website or follow us on social media. https://relayforlifeennis.ie/ @relayforlifeennis
