Flora Women’s Mini Marathon 2012

Thank You Thank You Thank you!

The sun was blazing in Dublin yesterday and our ladies didn’t disappoint. They came out in their hundreds to represent Aware in the biggest all-women’s event of its kind in the world, The Flora Women’s Mini Marathon. The Aware office is on route, close to the finish line and the team here was out on the steps all day, pumping out music and cheering on our ladies and indeed all the ladies around Ireland who came out and supported their favourite charity. What an inspiration! In the words of a young student from Terenure Presentation College “This is brilliant – I want to fundraise again for Aware, what else can I do? ”.

A very special thank you to the all the Tesco ‘ladies’ – we did notice there were a few hairy legs taking part. Well done to all of you! Aware is proud to be Tesco Charity of the Year 2012 & 2013. All funds raised by Tesco this year go towards our Beat the Blues school programme.
