Blisters for Sisters

We are back encouraging the ARC army of trail blazers to hit the ground running for Mná Na h-Éireann and all the cancer survivors we all hold dear.

Every year , our fantastic VHI Women’s Mini Marathon participants put on their ARC running shoes and ”come together” to raise thousands of euro for ARC Cancer Support Centres. Despite the restrictions still facing us all in 2021, we are hoping you will once again rise to the challenge but this time in the virtual sense!

The VHI Women’s Mini Marathon is the largest women’s event of its kind in the world! Since 2020, the dreaded Covid-19 put the brakes on the usual gathering on the June bank holiday. So, bearing this in mind the run has now moved to the virtual realm! Between the 1st – 19th September (or at any time or date suitable to you), we would love you to run, walk or be pushed in a pram, 10kms in aid of ARC! You can make it an event in any guise you wish! It can be in one go or spread over several days, in your local area or even in the comfort of your garden.

ARC provides free emotional, psychological, practical and educational support to men ,women and children affected by cancer and is determined to continue its mission. Seeing the efforts being put in by the entire organisation to nimbly redeploy to a blended approach ,with both physical and virtual realms is humbling.

On the fundraising side, we just want to ensure we can keep this wonderful organisation going, to keep giving the support that people need now more than ever.

 Wishing you and your loved ones every good wish.  Thank you, from all the ARC Team for supporting ARC Cancer Support Centres.
