The Foyle Hospice are seeking participants for the 2015 London Marathon.

The virgin London Marathon is one of life’s great challenges, and there are so many reasons to take part. Perhaps you’re looking for the personal challenge of a lifetime – to run 26 miles, or maybe you are running in memory of a loved one who has been affected by cancer or some other life limiting illness

In 2015 Foyle Hospice will be sending a team to the Virgin London Marathon and have secured a limited number of guaranteed Places. Commenting on the event Noel McMonagle, Community Fundraiser said

‘Last year our team raised over £40,000 for the work of the Hospice, allowing our dedicated staff to provide ongoing palliative care services for our patients. Overall running costs for the Hospice in 2014 were £2.8million and with only 19% funding from government we depend greatly on the support of our community through events like the Virgin London Marathon to raise the rest. The Virgin London Marathon is said to be the best marathon of them all. With the support of the crowds, fantastic atmosphere, this marathon is not one to miss!’

As a fundraising event, there is no marathon in the world that comes close to the famous Virgin London Marathon the course takes you through the streets of London and past all the main attractions Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Place and Canary Wharf. It is one of the world’s greatest sporting spectacles where you can line up with world and Olympic champions and at the same time be running beside a giant rabbit or Elvis.
