Ronan Boyce was a part of the Derry City members who helped to promote the iconic Foyle Hospice Male Walk.
The Brandywell player helped to launch the return of the Foyle Hospice Male Walk after a two year break due to the pandemic with a new 5k course.
The walk/run event will take place on Sunday, September 25 at 1.30 pm.
A spokesperson for the charity run said: “The Covid – 19 crisis, has put a strain on our healthcare system, making Foyle Hospice Specialist Palliative Care Services more critical than ever with increased patient admissions and referrals for Home Care and Young Person Counselling.
“We need your help to ensure we can provide high quality compassionate care to individuals with terminal and life-limiting illness while supporting their families and carers.
“This year is like no other with a specially commissioned Male Walk t-shirt that is provided to everyone that registers for the walk/run.
“The annual Male Walk tradition will continue this year with a cool, sharp t-shirt that will put the fun back in fundraising.
“After an amazing Female Walk in June this year, the Male Walk will be the biggest one yet, with men from all walks of life joining together and walking as one for their community.
“Our new route begins and finishes at Sainsbury’s. The walk this year will continue to follow the current pandemic restrictions.
“As in previous years we invite men from all over the world, to join in and take part in an event that has shaped the fundraising calendar of the North West.”
Foyle Hospice’s Noel McMonagle said: “The Foyle Hospice Male Walk has been running annually since 2004. We are delighted that Derry City FC will be supporting the event this year.
“We have had the honour of caring for local patients and their families there since 1991 and with the help and support of our community we can continue to provide specialist palliative care services and counselling to our patients and their families.
“All proceeds from the Male Walk helps towards the running costs of the Hospice and the Specialist Palliative Care Services that we offer our community; every registration will make a difference to someone in our community.
“We want men of all ages to join us this year, we are back together and we want everyone to see the power of positive actions.
“The Male Walk is a very special event and we are excited to be back this year making a difference.”
