Half Marathon, Full Marathon
Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services are delighted to announce the date for the Wicklow Hospice Marathon and Half Marathon. The event in aid of Wicklow Hospice will take place on 24th of October.
Wicklow Hospice would like to reassure all participants that we will be adhering Government and Athletics Ireland guidelines at all times to protect participants and staff and to ensure you have the best possible race experience.
The event will be managed in a safe manner and Wicklow Hospice would like to thank all participants for registering. More detailed event info will be emailed to all participants the week before the event. This will detail the guidelines at the time.
Start time: 8am for marathon and 9am for half marathon. Details of start area, waves etc will be emailed out week of event.
Wicklow Hospice, which is due to welcome its first patients later this year, will be the first specialist palliative care facility in County Wicklow. The facility will provide 15 in-patient beds at the Hospice at Magheramore as well as delivering specialist community palliative care services across the county. As an organisation that relies heavily on fundraising our efforts have been severely affected by COVID-19. €2.75m is urgently required to finish the build and to cover the bank loan required to complete the build.
Once complete, fundraising will fund vital on-going patient and family enhancements. All support in helping us to raise vital funds as we prepare to open the Hospice would be truly appreciated. With this in mind We would be very grateful if you would consider raising €100 sponsorship as part of this event. All donations would be gratefully received.
You can set up a fundraising page on www.justgiving.com or phone Sinead on 087 0954137 for a sponsorship card and fundraising pack.
