Marie Curie’s Anna Phillips joins Johnny Kirkpatrick, Event Assistant from the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon to help launch the charity’s ‘Making Tracks’ campaign in the run up to race day, Monday 4 May 2015.

With many people embarking on a ‘New Year/New Year’ outlook and with gym memberships set to soar after the over indulgence of the festive period there is no question that there will be a lot of old training kit relegated to a bottom drawer in favour of new shinny gym gear and those ‘just out of the box’ trainers.

Instead of keeping hold of your old kit or for that matter unwanted presents and even household item why not ‘Make Tracks’ to your local Marie Curie shop this January.  Every bag of stock you donate equates to £20 which will fund an hour of nursing care for someone living with a terminal illness.

By way of reward Marie Curie has teamed up with Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon and their Official Sport Apparel partner, ASICS, to offer people the chance to win a brand new pair of trainers…perfect for running in this year’s event.  To be in with a chance to win this prize simply bag up your stock and drop it off at your local Marie Curie shop before Saturday 31 January 2015.

Marie Curie operates 18 shops throughout Northern Ireland.  To find your local shop please visit
