There is no doubt that the Dublin City Marathon is a big deal for all of our participants, but it’s also such an important day for our hospital. We have always received fantastic support from marathon runners across the country and we cannot thank them enough. Since 2009 alone we’ve had nearly 600 people take part in the Dublin City Marathon who have raised almost €300,000 for our hospital.
Each year the money raised for the Dublin City Marathon has a huge impact in the upgrading of our wards. We have been able to buy life-saving machinery, another vital element in the upgrading of our hospital. If it wasn’t for brilliant fundraisers like our Dublin City Marathoners we simply wouldn’t be able to give the level of care and support that we pride ourselves on here in Temple Street.
If you are interested in joining Team Temple Street and running the Dublin City Marathon please register today. We will get a pack out to you in the post and support you all the way to the starting line!
