John Fitzmaurice grew up in Castlerea and now lives in Fuerty, Co. Roscommon.
John plans to run The Suck Valley Way in a Day, 115km, on Saturday 5th June 2021, to raise funds for Mayo Roscommon Hospice, Palliative Care Nursing Services.
The Suck Valley Way is a beautiful trail that follows the River Suck connecting the villages and towns of Castlecoote, Athleague, Ballygar, Creggs, Glinsk, Ballymoe, Castlerea, Ballintubber and Donamon. The trail is a lovely mix of bogs, woods, fields, and country roads, and is accessible to everyone. More information on the trail can be found on discoversuckvalleyway
John and his family, like many others, are aware of and grateful for the support that Palliative Care Nurses provide to patients and their families. Their work enables patients, where possible, to be cared for in their own homes with dignity and comfort.
