There is just ONE DAY left to register your school for the Relay for Life Donegal 1for1@1 challenge – will you help us reach the magical number of 50?
Are you in a primary or secondary school in Donegal with a bright idea to raise money for the worthy cause? Let us know and join the fun! Please email us with your school’s name and contact details to email@example.com
Today we welcome two new names to the list – Scoil Padraig, Drumfries, Clonmany and Scoil Mhuire, Belcruit, Kincasslagh. BUT WE NEED ONE MORE – will it be you?
From now until Friday, May 19th, we are asking schools to pick one challenge and on their chosen day to carry it out at one-o-clock. Relay for Life Donegal are doing this fun challenge in association with Donegal Daily to raise vital funds for cancer survivors.
Every student takes one euro into the school (hence the name 1for1@1) Every single euro raised for Relay for Life this year goes directly to the extensive research programme for cancer survivors presently ongoing at Letterkenny University Hospital.
Unfortunately, cancer does affect every family and we are asking ‘’ALL SCHOOLS’’ to please consider taking part as every euro is so important to us.
We’ve seen a Teachers v Students Football match at Crana College, Dancing from St Safan’s and 1km Walks at Illistrin NS, and many many more. What one thing can you do?
Take inspiration from these fantastic fundraising days at schools across the county:
Acres NS, Burtonport – Thank you!

The team at Donegal Daily have joined forces with the Relay for Life Donegal committee to promote the Schools Challenge for this most worthy of causes.
We are asking schools to do a one minute video of your challenge and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you can appreciate, it would be impossible for us to show all videos sent in but we will put up a selection of them over the next two weeks. If you can also send a photo of the students taking part in their challenge to the same address we will put that photograph up for viewing.
Remember that on the weekend of Relay for Life Donegal 27th/28th May at Letterkenny LYIT, all of the videos sent in will be shown on the ‘Big Screen’. So keep in touch with Donegal Daily and with the Relay for Life Donegal facebook page during the challenge!Tags:
