Don’t delay, Enter Today and set up your Fundraising Page with MyCharity.ie To be in with a chance to win €1,000 for your charity

The Women’s Mini Marathon Limited is delighted to announce MyCharity.ie as the fundraising partner for the next three years. To celebrate this MyCharity.ie is giving all participants who enter the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon a chance to win €1,000 donation for their chosen charity. All participants have to do is create a fundraising page with MyCharity.ie to be in the draw.

Women who participate in the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon play an important role in raising funds for their chosen charity each year. For some of the smaller charities it is their biggest fundraising day of the year. The money raised is a testament to the women who enter and their efforts and dedication in making each year more successful than the last for charities. But most of all it’s important to remember, that the day is always a fun day out with a great atmosphere when over 40,000 women come together to achieve their goals and in the process raise money for their chosen charity.

The Vhi Women's Mini Marathon is the biggest all women's event of its kind in the world. This year's event will take place on Bank Holiday Monday, 1st June 2015. It has grown from its beginnings in 1983 with almost 9,000 participants to a staggering 41,006 women participating in 2014.

Since 1983, nearly 921,000 women have entered the event and it has grown as women’s interest in their own health and vitality has developed over the last three decades.  Indeed, it is not only women who have benefited from the event, but the charities are also the big winners. In 2014 it is estimated that almost €12m was raised by the participants bringing the total since the race started in 1983 close to €192m. All charities benefit as it is the women themselves who decide who they will support and many local causes gain vital funds from the event. It is now the biggest one day charity event in the country.

Over €7 Million was raised for charities on MyCharity.ie in 2014. MyCharity.ie makes it as easy, simple and safe as possible to raise money for charity. Through their website they offer charities an online presence and the ability to receive donations directly from the public, all online. In addition MyCharity.ie offers charities the ability for their fundraisers to create their own unique fundraising page for any event, and is the most cost effective way to fundraise when participating in the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon.
