Footballers lend Claire a hand ahead of mini-marathon

RTE PRESENTER Claire Byrne was helped out by members of the Dublin ladies football team to launch the new 'YOUR' campaign. The campaign, in aid of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, is appealing for women to support the cause at this year's Flora Women's Mini Marathon.

The initiative is part of an effort to help the centre provide counselling and therapy services for those who have been affected by rape and childhood sexual abuse and also to maintain its 24-hour helpline. It is hoping to sign up over 200 people.

Claire, pictured here second from left, was helped out by Dublin GAA stars Sinead Goldrick, Sinead Finnegan and Natalia Hyland. To support the campaign or receive a sponsorship card call 1 800 77 88 88 or email
