Memorial Walk 2019

Registration for personalised t-shirts for our 2019 Memorial Walk has now closed.

Thank you to each and every one of you who registered for the event – there has been a huge response. You will have received your sponsorship cards in the post and you will be notified when the t-shirts are printed and available.

The 2019 Mayo Roscommon Hospice Memorial Walk will take place on Sunday December 1st as part of our Shine A Light Tree Lighting Ceremony in Knock.

The walk will take place in a loop route around Knock and will start at 5pm. It will be a candlelight event this year, with tealights being provided to those who walk.

Once the walk is finished, it will arrive back to the Pope Francis Plaza for our tree-lighting ceremony, which will start at 6pm. We will have entertainment and treats for everyone who is there.

For those who opt to pick up their t-shirt on the day of the event, there will be an opportunity to do so from 4pm at St John’s Rest and Care Centre in Knock on the day of the event.

We are also catering for those who did not register for the t-shirts or in advance of the event and we will accept a registration fee on the day and you will receive a generic Memorial Walk t-shirt. The fee to register on the day is €20 and you can do so at the St John’s Rest and Care Centre in Knock from 4pm.

The funds raised will go towards providing vital palliative care services in both Mayo and Roscommon and will also help in the construction of our new Roscommon Hospice and the running of the Mayo Hospice, which has been completed.
