The community of Ballybofey and Stranorlar will be taking to the streets for a worthy cause this Friday evening.

The Igloo and Patton Frozen Foods store is hosting a family run/walk in aid of inspirational local woman Sonya Hamilton Mc Closkey.

Sonya (35) is a local mum of five who has benefited from huge levels of community support during her battle with cancer.

And there is a lot of anticipation for the next fundraising event, as people and families are invited to run or walk in a fun 5K on Friday 16th August.

The race begins at 7.30pm from Meenan’s corner, with registration open until 7pm on the day.

It is a chipped event with some fantastic prizes but people of all ages and abilities are welcome.

All proceeds will go towards the Sonya’s Struggle fund. If you would like to support it online please visit:
