Childhood Cancer Foundation is celebrating the 4th annual Light It Up Gold campaign with a Candle Lit Walk in Gaway City Centre on Sunday 4th September.
Place: Meeting at Eyre Square in City Centre.
Event will include face-painting and kids entertainment prior to walk to Spanish Arch led by the Mayor. After the walk we will gather for a short candle lit ceremony with performances from Athenry Youth Choir and Youth Ballet West.
As part of the international campaign originating in the USA, buildings across the world will light it up gold in September to shine a light on the bravery of children dealing with cancer. In Ireland buildings from An Grianan Theatre in Donegal to St Colman’s Cathedral in Cobh and many in between such as the Bank of Ireland, the Convention Centre Dublin, Millmount in Drogheda, the Browne Door in Galway and the Dunbrody Famine Ship in Waterford will Light It Up Gold during September. They are joining international landmarks such as the Niagara Falls, Times Square New York and Harbour Bridge in Texas to light up gold for childhood cancer awareness.
