It is also a great opportunity to raise awareness for important causes, such as the importance of fostering and adoption.

Social Worker, Angela Stronge who also ran the 10K course tells the Ulster Star: “This has been a really useful event to help us promote the Adoption and Fostering Service and to highlight the need to provide safer support and care for children in our communities that need our compassion and understanding.”

Head of Service for Fostering and Adoption, Nuala Hanna commended the team and added: “ I would like to say thank you and well done to all of the staff who participated in the Lisburn Half Marathon to promote Adoption and Foster Care. This is yet another example of the level of dedication and commitment that our staff show daily to the children and families that we work with.”
