Mayo.ie Western People Women’s Mini Marathon
May 3 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
THIS ‘MAYO DAY’ WEEKEND JOIN ‘TEAM DAISY’ AND WALK, JOG OR RUN THE MAYO.IE WESTERN PEOPLE WOMEN’S MINI MARATHON TO HELP SUPPORT OUR PLANS TO BUILD DAISY LODGE, CO. MAYO
We are calling on all females to get together with your school mates, colleagues, friends or family and take on this 10k event. With a new route announced this year, there is even more reason to grab your trainers and have some fun, whilst raising funds for our much needed short break centre, near the village of Cong.
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Every week, on the island of Ireland, another 10 children, teenagers or young adults will be diagnosed with cancer. We understand that, beyond the essential medical care, there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt.
We currently offer therapeutic short breaks at Daisy Lodge, in Newcastle, Co. Down, for families throughout Ireland living with a childhood cancer diagnosis. Therapeutic short breaks allow families to spend quality time together in a peaceful and nurturing environment far removed from hospital and treatment regimes and to benefit from the support provided by our team of Cancer Support Specialists.
However we can only provide one in seven families with a short break which is why we have embarked on exciting plans for a new Daisy Lodge therapeutic centre in Co. Mayo to ensure all families across Ireland get the vital emotional support they need.
To make our plans a reality, and to continue supporting families throughout Ireland, we need YOU! So come on ladies, register today for the Mayo.ie Western People Women’s Mini Marathon, and together let’s make this happen!
*Gentlemen…unfortunately this is a female only event, however you can still show your support for the Mayo.ie Western People Women’s Mini Marathon by donating online or giving us a call on 0 1562 1580.
