Let’s Challenge Cancer Together

The aim of Sumo Run Ireland is to raise funds to support everyone affected by Cancer in Ireland. One in three people in Ireland will develop cancer during their lifetime. In Ireland an average of 30,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, and this is expected to rise to over 40,000 by the year 2020.
