Step up for the 2019 NI Hospice Walk

Northern Ireland Hospice launches its annual sponsored walk campaign

Northern Ireland Hospice is calling on individuals across Northern Ireland to step up for this year’s annual Hospice Walk taking place this April and June.

Hospice Walk

Now in its 38th year, the annual Hospice Walk campaign encourages people from across Northern Ireland to sign up to a walk in their local area and help raise much needed funds to support the care of infants, children and adults living with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.

The 2019 Hospice Walk will take place in seven picturesque locations across Northern Ireland, including two new walks; The Cuilcagh Boardwalk in County Fermanagh and the Forget Me Not Memory Walk in North Belfast.

From the beautiful surrounds of the Colin Glen Forest Park to climbing the Cuilcagh Boardwalk – Ireland’s amazing ‘stairway to heaven’- each scenic walk promises to be a great day out for your friends, family and even your four legged friends too!

There is also a ‘D.I.Y’ aspect to the walk. If you are unable to attend any of the organised walks, simply choose a date you are free and walk your favourite route. All you have to do is ask friends, family or colleagues to support you by joining in or making a donation.

Joanna Pawson, Events Manager at Northern Ireland Hospice, said: “The Hospice Walk is one of our most important fundraising events of the year and we’re encouraging everyone to step up and help make it a huge success. With walk routes ranging from three to nine miles, there’s a stroll to suit all ages and abilities.

“With annual running costs of £14m, all proceeds raised from this year’s Hospice Walk will enable us to continue to care for local people when they need it most.”

To register for the 2019 Hospice Walk, please visit http://www.nihospice.org or call 028 9077 7123.

Registration for adults costs £5 and children under 14 costs £1. Under 5’s go free!

This year’s Hospice Walk routes are kindly sponsored by Mauds Ice Creams, Mauds Bangor, and Creightons of Belfast.
