Cancer hasn’t stopped and we haven’t either, unfortunately our public fundraising has.  Cork ARC Cancer Support House has always relied on the support of the community to help us in providing our vital cancer support services to cancer patients and their loved ones. Last year we supported over 1,400 people whose lives were effected by cancer and now we need your help more than ever to continue this lifeline of support for cancer patients and their families during this difficult time.

Cork ARC has teamed up with Ireland’s only Celebrity Fittest Family winners, Rob Heffernan and Norma Sheahan to create the ARC2ARC 50 Mile Mission – whether it’s on foot or on wheels we are all appealing to you to sign up for our ‘ARC to ARC’ 50 Mile Mission.  This is a virtual mission, the distance from Cork ARC in Cork city to Cork ARC in Bantry and you can complete it anywhere in the world, in your own time, at your own pace and breaking the challenge into your own segments to suit your personal fitness level.


It’s a fun event for you, your family and your friends – all you need to do is register and nominate two others, then keep track of your distance and time until you reach your 50 miles, log in and submit your time to verify you have completed the mission. Your entry will be added to our results board. You can do it in as little as one mile or half an hour a day for 50 days or complete the lot in one day, remembering the Covid-19 restrictions in your area.

Take photos and tag us on social media, use the hashtag #ARC2ARC. Nominate two of your friends using the peace symbol, asking them to do the same. We want to make a commemorative collage of all the amazing people who are making our services possible by participating in our ARC2ARC 50 Mile Mission, so please make sure we see your photos somehow, you can even email them to fundraising@corkcancersupport.ie

Once you complete the mission you will receive a digital certificate of your achievement.

By signing up and nominating two friends to do the same, you are helping cancer patients and their families by ensuring they have the support they need when they need it most.  There is no obligation to fundraise, however if you can go the extra mile, and raise some money as well, we would be very grateful.
