Glendalough to Glenmalure walk next month
The Wicklow Hospice will hold its annual walk from Glendalough to Glenmalure on Sunday, September 8.
The Glen to Glen walk is suitable for most levels of fitness and participants will enjoy stunning scenery, while supporting the work of the Wicklow Hospice Foundation.
The route of the walk follows the Wicklow Way, passing Poulanass Waterfall, before descending into Glenmalure. Participants will walk through Ireland's longest and most magnificent glacial valley.
Anyone taking part is asked to meet at 9 a.m. at the Glenmalure car park. A bus transfer will be provided from Glenmalure which leaves at 9.30 a.m. The Glen to Glen walk starts at 10 a.m. from the Glendalough lower car park. At the finish, participants will receive a completion certificate. There will also be a light snack and a spot prize draw.
The Wicklow Hospice is on track for completion by the end of 2019, and since its infancy, there has been, and continues to be a massive interconnection between community support and hospice fundraising.
Evanne Cahill, Chairperson of Fundraising for the Wicklow Hospice Foundation said, 'this is the people's hospice; their continuous support over the past ten years has made this hospice a reality. The service it will bring to patients and their families will be incalculable. Thank you to each and every person who has and continues to support Wicklow Hospice".
