3rd Raad Ny Foillan Challenge

Isle of Man charity Diana Princess of Wales Hospice Care at Home Trust has launched its third Raad Ny Foillan Challenge and is inviting locals to participate in helping reach a £20,000 fundraising goal by August 2021.

The Challenge involves walking the whole of the famous Raad Ny Foillan coastal footpath. In order to enable as broad a participation as possible, the Challenge breaks up the 100-mile route into over 15 ‘legs’, with one leg being undertaken each month up until its conclusion in August 2021.

The first leg starts at 10.00am on Sunday June 28th 2020 and takes in the Raad Ny Foillan section from starting Niarbyl through to Peel, a distance of approximately 6 miles. Patron of the Trust, Lieutenant Governor Sir Richard Gozney, will be at the start to welcome walkers

All funds raised by the Trust go towards paying the specialist nursing costs involved in providing home hospice services for Isle of Man residents wishing to spend their last days at home. All funds donated to the Trust are used exclusively to offer end of life care for Manx residents and all fundraising work undertaken by the Trustees is done on a voluntary basis.

There is no obligation to complete every leg of the Challenge. Anyone interested in taking part in the walk this Sunday can email hospiceathomeiom@gmail.com or check the Trust’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/HospiceAtHomeIM/

A suggested minimum donation of £10 per adult walker, per leg, is advised.
