Hi Sumo Runners,

With less than 2 weeks to go to Sumo Run Ireland on the 28th of August, we want to thank you for setting up your Everydayhero Online Fundraising page!

The aim of Sumo Run Ireland is to raise funds to support everyone affected by Cancer in Ireland through the work of Purple House Cancer Support.

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.  Here at Purple House, we are available everyday to support anyone who needs us.

For every €40 raised, you will enable us to provide One Counselling Session to a family affected by Cancer.

If you would prefer a sponsorship card, just email us on [email protected] and we will post you one!

Have you been doing any training for the Sumo Run?  You can log it on your everydayhero page and track your training via mapmyfitness and Strava. Adding photos and thanking people increases engagement on your page as does adding video content. Share your page & progress with us on:

Thank you for your support & we will be in touch again before the 28th!
