Purple House provided a range of psycho-social support services to 2,033 people in the Wicklow & Dublin areas last year.  The VHI Women’s Mini Marathon is a vital fundraising event for us and one of our biggest fundraisers.  Over the past 26 years, we have had women taking part in the mini marathon every year for us, it is a real feel good event and a great chance for people to meet new friends.

Purple House would not be able to provide the level of services to people affected by Cancer without the goodwill of people taking part
in great events like the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon.

“For so many people to make the effort to run, jog or walk the 10km, it means so much to us and our clients and we are very grateful to
everyone who supports Purple House. 2015 was a record year for our Counselling Service, our team of counsellors provided 357 sessions in
2015. Also in 2015, our team of therapists provided 231 complimentary therapy sessions to people affected by Cancer in Leinster. Again in 2015, our team of volunteer drivers completed 608 trips bringing people to their chemotherapy sessions.”

If anyone wants to sign up for the Purple House Cancer Support 2016 Mini Marathon team, they can contact us by email info@purplehouse.ie or phone 01-2866966.

Each participant will receive:

6 Week Training programme,
