Purple House Cancer Support is seeking women to join their 2019 Women’s Mini Marathon team.

This year, we are delighted to introduce our 2019 Team Ambassador Jane Casey, who is honoring the memory of her mum Caroline Casey who sadly passed away from Cancer.  Caroline herself took part in the Mini Marathon for Purple House in 1997.

Purple House provided a range of Cancer Support services to over 1,300 people in Ireland last year.  The VHI Women’s Mini Marathon is a vital fundraising event for us and one of our biggest fundraisers.  Over the past 29 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. Over 1,300 people visited Purple House in 2018 for Counselling, support, information, classes and advice
. We cannot provide these vital services without fundraising events like the VHI Womens Mini Marathon

If anyone wants to sign up for the Purple House Cancer Support 2019 Mini Marathon team, they can do so here or
