The ISPCA would like to sincerely thank you for walking, running or crawling in BH Monday’s Flora Women’s Mini Marathon to help raise the much needed funds to support the ISPCA. The Marathon participants throughout the year are incredibly important to our Charity and we truly appreciate your vital support.
'Temperatures soared on Bank Holiday Monday 1st June as over 40,000 women took to the streets of Dublin to support their favourite charities. The Order of Malta had a busy time even before the race began with women fainting from the heat and dehydration. Temperatures rose to 25c but felt as if it was twice that standing in the crowds waiting for the 3pm start. There was lots of entertainment along the streets and volunteers provided thousands of dehydrated ladies with some well deserved cold water. The atmosphere was amazing as young and old battled the heat to cross that finish line and what an achievement ladies. Well done to all and thank you sincerely for supporting the ISPCA. I am looking forward to seeing you all again next year.' Carmel
