The annual ‘Walk for Diabetes’ fundraising event, hosted by the Dungannon Diabetes UK Support Group, will take place on Saturday June 3 in Dungannon Park.

Spanning over 1.2 miles in total, the walk is a great opportunity for participants to connect with people and support in the area, and also raises funds to support diabetes-related research projects in Northern Ireland.

Aiding diabetes research, the registration fee for the walk is £10 per person and children under 12 can take part for free. Registration will take place at the Fisherman’s Cottage near the carpark, with the walk itself commencing at 11am.
