The students of St. Safan’s National School in Castlefinn got groovy last week for their Relay for Life Donegal’ Schools 1for1@1 Challenge.
The young pupils did a fantastic Zumba dance to Bruno Mars’ fun song ’24K Magic’ – and it was a gem of a performance. The dance, as part of Active Schools Week, allowed students to successfully raise hundreds of euro for Relay for Life Donegal.
Sarah Marie from Pinehill Studios lead the dance and Ena from the Relay Committee joined the group on the day.
We are delighted to announce that three more schools registered to take part in the challenge last week. Now a total of 37 schools are now taking part in the ‘1for1@1 Challenge’! Welcome Crana College, Scoil Colmcille and Woodlands National School!

What’s the challenge?
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 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!
