Hey folks, the relay for life is finally back!!!, registration will soon begin 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

*This event is open to all four clubs but it also differs from many troops also as our friends and family can also be part of our team and help support us on this one!!! (many of us will be wearing costumes but you don't need a costume to take part in this!) 

Important*

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 a lot more in due course) to kick this thing off (We now have x10 members covering the registration fee)
Additional members can join the team by following this link:- https://www.relayforlifewexford.com/fundraisers/theempiregivesback

Scroll down and click on 'join us'



If you ask anyone who was part of our team in previous years they will all agree with me that this is one of the most rewarding troop/events you will take part in and a truly team bonding experience.

Last time 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.'

More info here:- (to be updated once the relay committee post more info')

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.

EVENT - Relay For Life Wexford 2020
LOCATION - Pairc Charman Wexford
DATE - July 09th-10th
TIME - (to be updated but usually around 2pm )
POC/Team Captain - Chris Lewis
COSTUMES - 501st, Rebel Legion,  RII, GA, *Friends and family
STAFF DEALING WITH EVENT - Chris Lewis

*The unique thing about this troop is that friends and family can join our team and take part with us, it will not be an official troop of course (from the point of view 501st) as they are not members but they will be part of our relay team and just as important, I can list them here and it just makes it easier to keep track of our team members.

The other unique thing about this troop is we can fund raise directly for the charity as members of our relay team on behalf of the Irish Cancer Society, this is different to most troops where we 'support the charity/fund raise' if that makes sense.

 

This year will be more important than ever, due to the pandemic the Irish Cancer society has lost the bulk of its funding for the last two years, this goes towards helping the people we love, lets help them make make this the best Relay yet, this is what we do, this what we are good at!!!

***Update***

The registration process is a little different this year, most of it is done via the Relay website now (still getting to grips with that), so far 10 members have paid, this covered the initial registration fee and secures our place and our Marquee, I paid in person today in Wexford town (in cash/see above post for receipt), those who have not yet paid must do it through the Relay website (not to me!), there they can join our team and pay their registration fee, you can also login to add additional details, add profile pic, T-Shirt size (if required, your registration fee covers you for this).

Really gutted that as things stand I'm not around on the date. If anything changes, how late in the day is it possible to sign up?

You can still sign up if you wish Daniel, if I you can't make the day of the Relay it would be a pity, but the actual event is only one day/night, it is a fantastic troop of course but much of the relay is to do with the lead up and fundraising before the actual event, local troops can be organised in a members local which is quite unique in terms of the way we do things, for example we do a bucket collection on the main street in Wexford town, I really hope other members can do the same in other parts of the country, I can walk anyone through the procedure of getting a permit 😎
