Join the Benevolent Fund Mini Marathon Team
This June Bank Holiday Weekend we are asking you to get out the Pink shirt again and Join the 40th Mini Marathon Team All we ask is that you raise €40 and send us a photo of you having fun taking part!! These funds will help the Benevolent Fund support Past Pupils who may need a little helping hand.
This mini marathon is a big celebration of achievement by one of our fantastic Committee members Perdita Quinlan. Perdita has taken part in all the 39 Mini Marathons and this year is no exception. Going for gold Perdita by taking part ... will have walked 4000km. We would like to celebrate that by raising €4000 - so we are looking for 100 Past Pupils to raise €40 each -
Com'n if Perdita can do it ... we can do it!!!

Mini Marathon Team over the recent years
Team 2020 - The Mini Marathon was cancelled due to the Coronavirus - however that did not stop our amazing Team! We asked Past Pupils to don a Pink Top and Walk, Run or Cycle 10k in their local 5k and we had a great response. What a 'Team of 2020' we had for the 10k in your 5k on Sunday 31st May 2020. 84 Pupils mostly Past and some current too, took part locally in their 5k and Walked, Ran or Cycled. Instead of paying an entry fee to the Mini Marathon they donated €25 to help fund the Benevolent Fund. We raised a whopping €3737.
Team 2021 - Again was a virtual event. We had people all around the country taking part. Everyone sent us in such happy photos - especially the multi generation ones. The Team raised a super €700.
Here are some of the lovely happy photos the previous Teams sent in to us.
Thanks to every one who took part - Hopefully we will be back in Leeson Street with 30,000 other ladies taking part in the REAL VHI Mini Marathon in 2023.
