  • Flora Women's mini marathon

Mairead Sweeney ran the Flora Mini Marathon for Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland in June 2013.
The mini marathon is a 10km race through the centre of Dublin and can be run in support of your favourite cause. It is a fantastic event to take part in and Mairead seriously trained for this and made the Society proud on the day.
