On June 5th, the VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon took place in Dublin, and our Mater Foundation team of amazing women were amongst 40,000 others who walked, jogged and ran the 10 km course.
The Mater team were raising vital funds for many areas of the hospital, including the heart and lung transplantation unit, the Family Heart Screening Clinic, cancer care services, and different units and wards of the hospital.
After the race, an after-party was held in Cafe en Seine on Dawson St, which provided a place to rest and dry off after the rain that swept in over the city in the afternoon.
Thank you so much to all the women who took part and everyone who supported them make a big difference to patients in the Mater Hospital. Have a look at some of the photos below from the day!
