#WomenwithImpact - Lisa Kelleher, Shannon’s Hopeline


Our #WomenwithImpact campaign this year has featured some of the women who are taking part in this year’s Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon campaign. 


This week we are sharing Lisa Kelleher’s story in our Every T-Shirt Tells A Story video series. 


Lisa is a co-founder of the Shannon’s Hopeline charity.  She and her sister Sandra set up Shannon’s Hopeline in 2017, in memory of her niece Shannon, who died by suicide in 2012 at the age of 13.  The charity visits schools, running ‘Be kind to your mind’ workshops to help support and educate young people on the importance of looking after their Mental Health.


Lisa has taken part in the Mini Marathon for many years, and wears her Shannon’s Hopeline t-shirt to raise awareness of Shannon’s Hopeline.
