The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon is one of the most exciting events in our calendar! We let our hair down, have some fun and raise vital funds for the hospital while we are at it!
By joining Team Temple Street you are signing up to be part of a very special team and one that we are extremely proud of. Over the years our ladies have raised a phenomenal amount of money and 2014 was no exception with a record €115,000 raised! On June 1st we hope that 1500 ladies will line the street for Team Temple Street, will you be one?
This year we will embark on one of our most ambitious projects yet – the construction of a new Neurology & Renal Outpatients Unit. Paediatric Neurology and Renal Dialysis & Transplantation are two of the hospital’s major specialties; the expert care in these units is a life-line for children all over Ireland.
Outpatient services for these critical specialties are currently run in cramped and crowded environments. Whilst the medical care is second to none, in many places, the hospital facilities are less than ideal.
“It’s like something from Alice and Wonderland. Every door is a different size and floors are sloping in all directions. There could be 30 children, parents and siblings on any given day and there is only one toilet – which doesn’t even fit a wheelchair. It’s so stressful.”
Over the years, with the help of our generous supporters we have been able to turn what was once a series of inner city houses into the state of the art hospital it is today. We have knocked down walls and extended wards, but our work is not done. We are focused on providing world class care for this and future generations. If you join us in 2015, you will be choosing to be part of something special. And you will be helping us make things better for so many children here in Temple Street.
Once you sign up we will send you our signature purple Temple Street t-shirt, sponsorship cards & fundraising and training tips. We’ll also keep you up to date with Team Temple Street news and other mini marathon related information. And finally, we’ll send you an invite to our exclusive after party for some well-earned beverages, food and fun! An event not to be missed!
Choose Team Temple Street in 2015 and we will walk, jog, run and support you every step of the way…
