Make Your Mark 2024

14th July 2024


Make Your Mark on Cancer 2024 is taking place July 14th!

Make Your Mark 2024, is a 22km sponsored walk held in memory of Mark Prendergast, who sadly lost his battle with Testicular Cancer in June 2012.

Mark enjoyed his life, and although taken too young by cancer he has instilled in family and friends a zest for life and an urge to help other cancer patients and their families. We honour the taken, we admire the survivors, and we support those currently fighting. His motto 'Look up, not down; look out, not in; look forward, not back' lives on." - Fiona Prendergast, Mark's wife.

Since its inception in 2012, ‘Make Your Mark on Cancer’ has raised over €500,000. We are so grateful for your support to date. The 22km walk begins at The Viaduct Inn on Sunday 14th July 2024 and ends in the Town Hall in Bandon.

Everyone is welcome to join the walk - you can even dress up if you like! We are committed to securing funding to support current, former and future cancer patients and their families at the Mercy Hospital.

Thanks to you, we can help them through this difficult and worrying time. Your support is so important, now more than ever.
