Hospice places filling up fast for the Flora Women’s Mini Marathon

March 31, 2014

Time is running out to register to take part in the Flora Women’s Mini Marathon 10K on Monday 2nd June 2014 in aid of Southern Area Hospice Services – have you signed up yet?

Two enthusiastic Hospice supporters who have already signed up, Michelle McNally and Fiona Stephens (Hospice Corporate Fundraising Officer), recently joined Fiona Kieran of Southern Area Hospice Services, to call on other ladies to join them and walk, run or jog the Flora Women’s Mini Marathon 10K to raise vital funds for Southern Area Hospice Services.

This will be Michelle’s tenth year to take part in the Flora Women’s Mini Marathon for the Hospice and she has thoroughly enjoyed each and every year that she has been involved. She said, “If anyone is thinking of taking part in the Mini Marathon I would say to them – go for it. I love taking part as I like helping to raise funds for the Hospice, and as well as that the ‘craic’ is always great. You don’t need to have a high level of fitness as you can choose to walk, run or jog. It really is a fantastic day out which is why I keep going back year after year.”

The Flora Women’s Mini Marathon takes place on Monday 2nd June in Dublin and if you want to be part of the Southern Area Hospice Services team for this year’s event you need to register with Fiona Kieran by Wednesday 9th April 2014. Registration costs £25 which includes race entry, transport to and from Dublin (pick ups in Newry and Dundalk) and a running vest. All participants are also asked to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.

Southern Area Hospice Services provides care and support, free of charge, to local people who are living with Cancer and other terminal illnesses such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, HIV and Aids. Without the support of local people the Hospice simply could not continue their work caring for people and their families at a time when they need it most.

So, don’t delay – get the ladies in your life together and sign up for what is always a fantastic day out. For more information or to register please contact Fiona Kieran on 028 30251333 or email Registration can also be completed online at:
