This July we are taking away the excuses and asking you to complete Marathon in a Month!

You can walk, run or jog it, at your own speed and in your own time, but the main thing is you CAN do it, you CAN complete a marathon! It can be over a few hours, days or weeks - you’re in control. Whether it’s in your local park, on the way to work, at home or abroad, this is at your speed, your way, your Marathon in a Month. Last year over 600 people took on the challenge, why not join the team?

Sign up to Marathon in a Month now and your donations could help fund the following:


could cover one call to a specialist cancer nurse on the Freephone Cancer Nurseline


could help provide vital clinical equipment for one Night Nurse


could provide advice and support to 6 cancer patients at one of our Daffodil Centres


could help provide vital clinical equipment for six Night Nurses

Donate now

Get active this July and take part in your own personal marathon and make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. Every week we should be doing 150 minutes of physical activity. That’s the same number of people who get a cancer diagnosis in Ireland every day. Take on the Marathon in a Month challenge and make every step matter by getting your friends to sponsor you and help us to provide care, information and support for cancer patients and their families.
