This Sunday, October 4, cyclists from a wide area will participate in a cycle run around the Foyle in support of Pathway to Peace.
Pathway to Peace is a peace-building initiative involving 237 primary and post-primary schools from Drumsurn outside Limavady to Rosslea in County Fermanagh.
In addition to writing 25 word peace pledges, pupils at every participating school are in the process of pledging peace for their country by signing their names on a massive roll of material, kindly donated by Hunter Apparel Solutions Springtown.
Young people, with open hearts, open minds, fresh ideas, positive energy and the power of optimism are the key to a brighter future here in Northern Ireland. The young have the power to forge a path of good hope that shimmers with peace and prosperity for all.
Cyclists are invited to sign in for the Foyle Run at First Derry Presbyterian Church, Upper Magazine Street,from 8.30am on Sunday morning, October 4.
Refreshments will be provided in the church hall for cyclists at the end of the cycle run.
All money raised will be used to support Pathway to Peace whose architects are young people attending schools and colleges across Northern Ireland.
