Why are we doing this?
Taking part in regular physical activity can have a positive impact on overall health and wellbeing. Through our partnerships with parkrun and the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon, we see first-hand the positive impact that regular running has on people’s overall wellbeing. We want young people in communities across Ireland to get the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of running and leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
