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

This July you and over 1000 people took on the distance of a Marathon in July! Whether you completed this challenge in a day, or a month, the impact is still the same. The funds you have raised will go towards free care services for those affected by cancer in Ireland, as well as funding vital cancer research projects - now that's an achievment to be proud of!

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.
