Walk For Rachel

1,000 people walk round Kirkistown in memory of Rachel Williamson.

Pictured are some of the approximately 1,000 people who took part in the ‘Walk for Rachel’ 16k walk – or run if preferred – at Kirkistown today.

16-year-old Portavogie girl Rachel Williamson tragically died following a severe asthma attack in July. Her parents Simon and Barbara organised the event to commemorate her life and to raise awareness of the dangers of asthma.

The run was started by the Mayor of Ards & North Down, Councillor Robert Adair – who also took part. Also present was Jim Shannon, MP for the area.
