Here to Support
The Mater Foundation is here to help you put the runners on, get out training, and start raising those funds. We know you can often do this without out us, but we can’t improve patient lives without you – so we’re always at the end of the phone or email to guide you through your fundraising.
The VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon page has some excellent resources for training, diet and nutrition, and what to expect when you take to the streets of Dublin on the June Bank Holiday Weekend.
What Our Supporters Have Achieved
In the past, some of the ways in which people like you have made a difference are:
- Improving care for women who attend the Mater for breast cancer screening
- The purchase of 8 new exercise bikes for the Heart and Lung Transplantation Unit
- Equipping the Cancer Day Ward with essential equipment
- Supporting the Family Heart Screening Clinic test families for inherited cardiac conditions
