The Hall family from Lisburn are getting ready to step out for a day of family fun at Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Belvoir Park Forest Walk in Belfast on Saturday 4th June.
The family are taking part in the 10 mile walk to raise money for the charity that looked after their father, Frank Hall, when he was sick.
On behalf of her family, Barbara Hall said: “Sadly on 19th of October 2015 our daddy passed away. He was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was very much into helping others. He would have done anything for anyone.
“While dad was getting his radiation treatment he was very relaxed due to both the atmosphere in the hospital and how great the staff where while he was receiving his treatment. They were amazing with him.
“They were very much patient orientated. Dad was a true gentleman and everyone thought so highly of him. So we as a family decided to do this walk for an amazing charity in his honour.
“So on the 4th June as a family we will be getting our walking shoes on and completing this walk and as our dad would have said once we have completed it ‘job done’.
“We all miss and love him dearly and he will always be remembered as our hero. So let’s continue to support charities like friends of the cancer centre on the amazing things they do for both the patient and their families.”
Registration for the event is £5 and children under 12 go free.
Participants are encouraged to get their fundraising hats on and set themselves a target of raising £50 or more, with all money going to fund Friends of the Cancer Centre’s life-saving and life -changing projects which directly benefit local cancer patients.
