**** note**** due to the pandemic this event is now a 'virtual relay', scroll to my latest post (page 2 on the thread) for details
Hey folks, registration has began for this years relay. This will be the fourth year our clubs team 'The Empire Gives Back' will be taking part.
This year they are anticipating a huge demand for team places, luckily the relay committee keep a spot just for us
Myself and John O'Dwyer (Ghostmaker) will again be taking on the roles of team captains so any questions just ask.
*This event is open to all four clubs!!! (also many of us will be wearing costumes but you don't need a costume to take part in this!)
Registration costs €10 per person and a deposit of €100 is required to secure our team place for 2020, this mean we need at least 10 members (hopefully alot more in due course) to kick this thing off. This is where we will need your help, anyone wishing to register please pay me ASAP, cash would be easiest if you see me in person or else paypal me (friends and family please) to 8888888888888with a note attached 'registration fee for the Relay for life 2020', your registration fee also covers you for your relay T-Shirt, I will take sizes in due course.
I can then add you to the signup and also a Facebook chat group relating to this event.
If you ask anyone who was part of our team last year im sure they will all agree with me that this, along with Portmagee, is one of the most rewarding troop/events you will take part in and a truly team bonding experience.
Last year we helped raise over €130,000
For anyone who hasn't heard about the relay for life here is some information:-
'Relay For Life is a 24 hour event that brings the whole community together to Celebrate the lives of cancer survivors, Remember those lost to the disease and Fight Back by increasing knowledge of cancer and raising money to fund vital research and services of the Irish Cancer Society. At Relay, teams of family members and friends commit to having at least one member of their team walking around the track at all times. While they are doing that, a festival of fun, entertainment and community takes place which unites everybody in the fight against cancer.'
This is a great family event with lots of vendors, food, live bands and plenty of entertainment during the whole event!
1. It is a 24 hour event! - this mean you will be at the event for 24hrs!
2. Fundraising is a big part of the relay both during the event and leading up to it, sponsorship forms will be given out in due course to those signed up.
3. This is open to anyone, not just Garrison members, friends, family, acquaintances etc., the more members we can get on the team the more funds we can raise for this worthy cause!.
4. You don't have to be in costume for this but it would be great if you do!, some of us were last year and we had a great response entertaining the crowds
Note:- If you have any friends or family who would like to join us then please invite them to do so, just mention it to us and we will add them to the sign-up
I will update this thread as and when more information comes in.
