Female Walk/Run

Our Female Walk/Run is back this year and we are excited to put the fun back in fundraising! 

We are back together and making a difference on 12th June at 11.30am and we would be trilled if you all could join us.

The last Sunday in June is traditionally the Iconic Female Walk/Run at Foyle Hospice, we have had to complete the Female Walk virtually the past two years but this year we are back together and hope you will help us make a difference to our services and walk with us on Sunday 12th June at 11.30am starting at the Catalyst Building at the Bay Road.

The Covid-19 crisis has put a strain on our healthcare system, making Foyle Hospice Services more critical than ever with increased patients admissions and referrals for Home Care and Young Person Counselling. Our fundraising efforts have been diminished over the past two years and we are in urgent need of support to help fund our community-focused services. We need your help to ensure we can provide high-quality compassionate care to individuals with life-limiting illnesses while supporting their families and carers. 

Registration is £10 and a custom t-shirt is provided, that can be collected from the fundraising office.

We would welcome any content you have to share wearing the t-shirt from pictures, videos, TikToks, and posts on your social media platforms. Get creative…we love it!
