VHI Women’s Mini Marathon

Run the Mini Marathon in support of Croi 

The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon, an annual 10k charity road race, occurs each June bank holiday weekend in Dublin and is the largest Women’s event of its kind in the world.

In 1983, the inaugural event had 9,000 women entering and the event reached a record attendance in 2014 with 41,006 women taking part. The event has grown in popularity as women have taken more interest in their own health and fitness. A staggering 1 million women have entered the event over its 36 years.

Hundreds of charities are also big winners. The women decide themselves which charity they will support and many local causes gain vital funds from the event. It is now the largest one day charity event in the country.

Thank you for supporting Croí and the fight against heart disease and stroke.

Funds raised for Croí through the Sea2Summit will support our Third Age Project in Mayo.

The Mayo Third Age Program offers a new way of thinking. It focuses on the life stage of 55 years and older – the next chapter of life as people consider retirement. The big aim is to show that through education, health promotion and health screening in the third age we can reduce the impact of heart disease so that the people of Mayo can live the longest healthiest lives.

The program kick-started already this year with a public talk in the Town Hall, Westport earlier this year. Croí have appointed a Nurse Coordinator Patricia Hall who is leading the project and Croí will be visiting towns and villages throughout the County over the coming months and years providing education, awareness and health screening for the 55 + age group.

This is a new initiative by Croí following on from the success of the Mayo Action on Heart Disease and Stroke Program. The Mayo Third Age Program is being led by Croí in a partnership with HSE West and Mayo County Council.

PLUS, if you raised over €50 for Croí, we will thank you with a Croí t-shirt and snood! Watch the video below to learn how your donations make a huge difference.
