We are delighted to announce that The Mater Foundation is the new charity partner for the Aer Arann Islands Half Marathon, which takes place on the stunning island of Inis Mór from 21st to 23rd April 2023.

The Half Marathon is a unique opportunity to run, walk or jog in the spectacular and scenic surroundings of Inis Mór and to soak up the atmosphere, ceol and culture that the island has to offer.

For more than 20 years, the Aer Arann Islands Half Marathon has supported worthy causes. We are honoured to work with the Marathon Committee to raise the funds to enable us to transform and improve patient care in The Mater Hospital, which provides expert, specialist treatment to hundreds of thousands of sick people and their families from all across Ireland each and every year.

Mater Foundation CEO, Mary Moorhead:
“Every single day here in The Mater Foundation, we have the privilege of seeing the magic that happens when people come together to make a difference for others. The Inis Mór community, Half Marathon Committee, Aer Arann Islands and the committed marathoners who participate every year have shown this unwavering commitment to making a real difference for more than twenty years. That’s why we are so immensely proud to join them as their charity partner in the next phase of this important journey and support the hundreds of thousands of sick people and their families from all across the country who attend The Mater Hospital.”
