THE Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children (NICFC) is calling on people from Lisburn to dust off their trainers for this year's Belfast City Marathon on Monday, May 2.
Over 20,000 runners are expected to take part in this year's marathon and the NICFC is looking for people to join its team and turn the streets of Belfast yellow on May Day to raise as much money as possible for children, teenagers and young adults living with cancer and their families.
Dawn Weir, Community Fundraiser for NICFC, says, "Whether you are an experienced runner, a walker or just keen for a great day and a challenge with friends we want to hear from you, we would love as many people as possible to take part and raise money for the NICFC.
"The race will be physically and mentally challenging but what better motivation to get you over the finishing line than knowing the money you are raising will go towards providing vital care and support to families affected by childhood cancer."
All NICFC runners will be supported with a fundraising pack, training tips, a t-shirt and everything else you will possibly need.
To join the NICFC running team please contact Dawn at NICFC on 028 9080 5599 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
