DIABETES UK Northern Ireland is reminding people in the Coleraine and Portrush areas to put their feet first for diabetes and register now to take part in their local Walk in the Park.
The walk will take place from East Strand, Portrush to Whiterocks Beach on Saturday, June 9 at 10.30am.
Naomi Brown, National Fundraising Assistant for Diabetes UK Northern Ireland said: “This is just a final reminder so that everyone who wants to take part can get themselves organised.
“This is the first time a walk has been organised in the Portrush/Coleraine area and we are hoping for great support. It will be a lovely family day out and it is a good way for people to meet other families in the area who have been affected by diabetes. Diabetes UK depends on events such as this to provide vital funds for research, information, care and support for those affected by diabetes. I would like to thank all those who have registered and hope we get some lovely sunny weather to enjoy!”
Latest figures indicate 2450 people in the Coleraine Borough Council area are diagnosed with diabetes.
