Now in it's second year, The National Dawn Walk For Cancer takes place on the 23rd of June 2018 at 5am.
This year's National Dawn Walk will take participants on a 10km journey around the picturesque towns of Bagenalstown and Leighlinbridge as well as taking in the ever peaceful River Barrow.
This year the funds raised will benefit CMRF Crumlin, LauraLynn Children’s Hospice and the Irish Cancer Society.
St John’s Ward in Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin, is the main cancer ward and national referral centre for children in Ireland. In one year alone, the ward can deal with roughly 1,140 patients and more than 7,200 day patients. Every child with cancer, up to the age of 16 will be treated and cared for here.
On the morning of the walk, we will be gathering at The Presentation De La Salle College, Bagenalstown from 3.30am with the walk beginning at 5am at the break of dawn. The looped walk will finish at the college for around 7am where refreshments will be served.
