Galway Daily news Galway Hospice Memorial Walk

If you’re making plans to get out and about one weekend then you might consider getting some exercise in and help an amazing cause at the Galway Hospice Memorial Walk.

The Memorial Walk is the biggest annual fundraising event for Galway Hospice and holds a special place in the hearts of many in Galway.

The walk starts at Claddagh Hall at midday on Sunday, September 12 and follows the coastal route to Blackrock and back, 6.5km in all.

Those who take part in the Memorial Walk do so in remembrance of a deceased family member, friend or work colleague, with many participants wearing the name of their loved one on specially personalised tee-shirts, provided by the Hospice.

Those wishing to take part in this year’s Memorial Walk must register in advance. For more information or to register online go to

“Funds raised through the Walk each year, help our nursing, medical and support staff to bring comfort to those who are coping with the diagnosis of cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.”

“More patients than ever, both adults and children, with an ever-widening range of life-limiting illnesses, are turning to us in their time of need.”

“Your support will enable us to continue to provide our specialist Palliative Care services, free-of-charge and to the greatest possible number of patients, for as long as they are needed.”

“Someday, someone you know may need our services. Others need us today.”
