Cystic Fibrosis Ireland is hoping to round up 1,000 women to help raise funds by running in this year's Mini Marathon.

Women across the country have been urged to "cajole, sweet-talk and charm the socks off friends and family" to create their own teams.

The charity has set its sights on securing the support of 100 teams of 10 to take part in the 10km run in Dublin's city centre on June 3.

RTÉ broadcaster Evanne Ní Chuilinn was on hand yesterday to launch the Onein1000.ie campaign.

"Of course, you don't have to be Sonia O'Sullivan to take part," she said, adding all were welcome.
