VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon 2019

On June 2, 150 runners and 15 teams participated in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon in Dublin in support of FirstLight. Because of the generous, charitable efforts of everyone who ran in FirstLight's aid, collectively the teams raised over €20,000 for FirstLight services.

We had the opportunity to host a gathering before the Marathon commenced in Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre where we held our Christmas Pop-Up Shop last December. We had the chance to meet all of the runners who nominated FirstLight as their charity for the Marathon and gave out a small gift as a token of our thanks, a FirstLight candle.

The teams shared precious moments as they remembered the cause they were running for, by writing messages onto hearts to be hung on the FirstLight tree displayed in our office.

We want to thank everyone that nominated FirstLight as their charity and who participated in the Marathon, and everyone that donated on FirstLight's behalf. It was a special day for everyone involved, and it would not have been possible without all of the time and energy put in by the incredible runners.
