There’s just four days to go before the annual Foyle Hospice Female Walk/Run.

This Sunday thousands of women will take to the streets of Derry for the city’s most popular 5k

And you can walk it, or you can run it.

Noel McMonagle, Community Fundraising Manager at Foyle Hospice said: “Each year it costs approximately £2.9M for the Hospice to provide specialist palliative care for patients and their families and we depend greatly on the support of our community participating in events like our annual Female Walk/Run to help us reach our fundraising targets each year so I would appeal to as many of our females in our community to come along and join in this fun event on Sunday 12th June.”
