Volunteers sought for mini marathon
Local organisations Open Door and Purple House are appealing to locals to take part in this year's VHI Women's Mini Marathon on Monday, June 5.
'Many thanks to all who have supported this major fundraising event in the past,' said a spoksperson for Open Door. 'Open Door will provide transport from Bray to the event and returning to the centre after the race for a reception with strawberries and cream and a glass of bubbly.'
Interested parties should register at www.vhiwomensminimarathon.ie then contact Suzanne on 01 2867123 to get their Open Door charity pack with a sponsorship card and t-shirt.
'Your support will help provide activities for adults with physical and sensory disabilities,' the spokesperson added.
'Purple House would not be able to provide the level of services to people affected by cancer without the good will of people taking part in great events like the VHI Women's Mini Marathon,' said Veronica O'Leary, Director of Services at Purple House.
If anyone wants to sign up for the Purple House Cancer Support 2017 Mini Marathon team, they can contact them by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01 2866966.
Each participant for Purple House will receive a t-shirt and bandanna, transport there and back, and a barbecue and celebration event at the Martello afterwards.
