Galway Memorial Walk

September 13, 2020

Celebrate the life of a loved one

Galway Memorial Walk in aid of Galway Hospice is a special way to celebrate loved ones no longer with us.

This year, Covid-19 means we can’t all come together to walk.

We’re asking you to walk somewhere special with family and friends on Sunday 13th September.

Support Galway Hospice Care

Galway Hospice has continued to provide care throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and we need your support now more than ever.

Make it a walk to remember by registering now for the Galway Memorial Walk. 

Register before Friday 21st August to receive a t-shirt personalised with the name of your loved one. 

Everyone who registers for the Galway Memorial Walk will receive a special sapling sponsored by McD’s Home & Garden.

This year, we can’t all come together to walk so we’re asking you to walk somewhere special with family and friends on Sunday 13th September.

Your Memorial Walk can be done in your own locality or at a location that has special memories for you. If the date doesn’t suit, you can do it on another day.  

Yes. All participants are required to register, including those who have taken part before.

Yes.  When registering, choose a personalised t-shirt and enter the name you would like printed on your t-shirt.

No.  However, there is a cost to Galway Hospice to print t-shirts and we ask that participants raise sponsorship to help fund our services.

Covid-19 restrictions means t-shirts cannot be collected from Galway Hospice this year. When registering, please select your preferred collection point for your t-shirt:

  • Coral Leisure, Tuam – 12-6pm Thursday 3rd September
  • McD’s Home & Garden, Loughrea – 12-6pm Friday 4th September

To reduce Hospice costs, we ask that t-shirts are collected where possible. If this is not an option, the t-shirt can be posted to you.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide t-shirts for children.

No. Galway Hospice welcomes all funds raised as it relies on events like the Galway Memorial Walk to ensure the continued free availability of services to patients and families.
