In Ireland over 190,000 people are living with diabetes. A further estimated 50,000 people remain undiagnosed. This shocking figure is set to rise.
The route for the 10 KM Galway Lunar Walk has been planned to allow walkers to take in Galway sights, historical landmarks and places of interest along their route. This walk offers something for everyone.
On completion of the route walkers can avail of refreshments in the Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill.
This event is supported by Medtronic in Galway where each year employees choose a Charity of the Year. Their chosen charity this year is Diabetes Ireland.
To date Medtronic employees in Galway have organised a memorial walk in honour of a colleague, MacDara Cassidy and a spinning competition to mark World Diabetes Day, their penultimate event is The Galway Lunar Walk.
