About The Walk

Now in its 3rd year, the National Dawn Walk for Cancer, which has seen 1200 participants to date, takes place on the 24th of August 2019 at 5.45am. Similar to last year, the walk will take participants on a 10km looped walk on flat terrain through the picturesque towns of Bagenalstown and Leighlinbridge in County Carlow including the ever peaceful River Barrow. We are delighted to raise much needed funds for our charity partners, LauraLynn Children’s Hospice and CMRF at Crumlin Hospital. A new addition this year is the fact that we are raising funds for local cancer support centres across Ireland.   For every county that is represented at the walk, a percentage of the monies gathered will be given to their local Cancer Support Centre.

On the morning of the walk, we will gather at the Presentation De La Salle College, Bagenalstown from 4am onwards. The walk will begin at 5.45am at the break of dawn and will follow the looped route. Refreshments will then be served at the college and a special Remembrance Ceremony will take place in memory of all those who have died as a result of cancer.





The cost is €15 per adult and €10 per child to participate which includes a free t-shirt and refreshments after the walk. Please stay tuned to our social media for regular updates and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
