Events

Whether it’s a coffee morning, run, challenge event or overseas trek, we have a range of charity events for all interests, ages and abilities. Get involved today and fundraise to support local children with cancer, and their families.

 

  ******Coronavirus and our Fundraising Events*******

 

Due to the unprecedented impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing public health restrictions, Cancer Fund for Children have made the decision to postpone our fundraising challenge events for the remainder of 2020.

 

We are disappointed about this however we hope that you will understand that our decision reflects the wider public health situation.

 

The coronavirus pandemic may have stopped a lot but unfortunately cancer is not one of them and families need our help more than ever in these strange and frightening times.

 

Our ability to fundraise vital income has been dramatically impacted however with your continued support, we are determined to ensure that no child faces cancer alone.

 

There are still many ways that you can support us either by taking part in one of our virtual challenges or by doing your own fundraising challenge.

 

If you have a fundraising idea, please get in touch with our fundraising team today!

Your Event Stories

  • Ballyclare High School is delighted to have supported Cancer Fund for Children's ReadOn campaign over the past number of years. Participating in ReadOn is a great way to encourage the enjoyment of reading amongst our pupils but it also makes them aware of the needs of many young people their age and enables them to make a practical difference to the lives of families across Northern Ireland.

  • When Micéal passed away, as a family we decided to fundraise for Cancer Fund for Children in Micéals memory. We chose the Bog Run because we know Micéal would have loved the idea of coming in first, ahead of all the family rotten from head to toe - even though it's not a race, that would be his competitive nature. We would encourage as many people as possible to join us and do what they can to raise money for an amazing charity like Cancer Fund for Children.

  • “As part of our Pastoral Care policy in St Ita’s we stress the importance of keeping safe in the sun. Hats and Shades is a great way of helping us promote this message to children, whilst also raising money for Cancer Fund for Children.”
