Anna Lo MLA said: “I have taken part in several One World Runs and I am delighted to officially launch this year’s event. It is a great way to get some exercise as well as raising awareness and money for some great international development charities.
“I would encourage everybody to get involved on Sunday 18th May, whether they are keen runners and wish to do the 10km run, or those who may just want to do the family fun walk. It is not about your ability that is important, it is about taking part.
“Our community can come together to help those who live in developing countries. We have the opportunity to do our bit for those less fortunate. It is important to think beyond ourselves, to recognise that there are those who live in conditions that are incomprehensible to us.
“I am sure that the 2014 Belfast One World Run will be as successful as previous events and would encourage everybody to take part.”
