Galway Daily news Galway Hospice memorial walk

People will take to the streets and paths around their homes an beyond next month for the annual Galway Hospice Memorial Walk.

The 16th annual memorial walk, which honours and celebrates those who are no longer with us, is taking place on Sunday, September 12

This year, Covid-19 again means we can’t all come together to walk the Salthill Prom so Galway Hospice is asking you to walk somewhere special with family and friends.

Galway Hospice has continued to provide care throughout Covid and it needs your support now more than ever. Make it a walk to remember by registering now for the Galway Memorial Walk.

“This walk is so special for us and for people each year. It means we can have a day when we all come together and honour those who have been lost from our lives,” said Mary Nash, CEO of Galway Hospice.

“Seeing people walking in memory of their family, friends and loved ones and celebrating their lives is always so poignant in Galway on the second Sunday in September.”

“It allows us all to come together as a community to remember and to raise vital funds for other people who will need our help throughout the coming year.”
