Flora Women's Mini Marathon
Flora Women’s Mini Marathon


Dublin was the place to be if you wanted to see butterflies on Monday 2 June!  Over 400 women (and some men!) wore their butterfly wings and blue tshirts in support of #TeamDEBRA in this year’s Flora Women’s Mini Marathon, helping us with our dream of turning Dublin blue.  It was one of our biggest teams ever so thank you to each and everyone who ran, jogged walked and sponsored our team of butterflies.




All monies raised from the Marathon will help to continue and expand our Patient Support Services. To be included in our Prize Draw please return your sponsorship by Friday 25th July:
