SPRINGWELL Running Club hosts the Boom 10K Road Race in association with the Ulster University this Thursday evening (June 8) at 7,30pm.
This annual event is organised to help raise awareness and much needed funding for the Boom Foundation sarcoma charity, and with the move to a midweek race date, Race Director Alison Rankin hopes to secure a soar in numbers in support of this local charity race.
The Boom Foundation was established in 2013 following the death of Philip Wilson from sarcoma.
Sarcomas are rare cancers that develop in the supporting or connective tissues of the body such as muscle, bone, nerves, cartilage, blood vessels and fat and around 3,800 new cases are diagnosed each year in the UK.
