Slieve Donard Moonlit Walk Friday 3rd June 2016
Torches at the ready for Cancer Focus NI Moonlit Walk!
Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is calling all walkers to challenge themselves to trek to the top of the highest peak in Northern Ireland – in the dark!
The Slieve Donard Moonlit Walk will take place on Friday 3rd June and all money raised will go towards helping local cancer patients and their families.
Jillian Wallace, Challenge Events Officer for Cancer Focus NI, said, “This is a great event for any keen walkers out there as well as people looking for a new and exciting challenge.
“Trekking the Mourne Mountains is a treat at the best of times- but by moonlight it will be a truly spectacular experience. The walk will start at 8pm and we plan to make it to the summit around midnight.
“From the top we’ll be able to stargaze and marvel at the lights of Newcastle and beyond, before returning to Donard car park for a well-earned hot cuppa. It will truly be a night to remember.”
Cancer Focus NI is a local charity committed to tackling cancer by supporting cancer research, providing services for cancer patients and their families and by advising people how to reduce their risk of the disease.
Jillian explained, “Our work in the community includes cancer support groups, a free helpline on 0800 783 3339, a bra-fitting service for women with breast cancer, art therapy, creative writing and other therapeutic and complementary services.
“We also have Keeping Well vans that bring health checks to local communities and we bring cancer prevention services to workplaces, schools, sports and social venues.
“All Cancer Focus NI services are provided free of charge for cancer patients and their families but we do need public support to help raise the necessary funds to continue our valuable work. So please do consider taking part in our Slieve Donard Moonlit Walk- your support really will make a difference.”
