Run the Women’s Mini Marathon for Helium

Join Helium Arts at the 2015 VHI Women’s Mini Marathon and raise funds for teenagers with cancer and chronic illnesses. This year, we are looking for people to run the mini-marathon to help us fundraise for our award-winning Two Suitcases film project for teenagers living with chronic illnesses. In 2014, we partnered with CanTeen Ireland, the national support agency for teenagers with experience of cancer. It was a great success and we are looking forward to bringing the project to more participants and other support agencies in 2015 with your help.
