Irish Heart Foundation
Why run for us?
Every year almost 9,000 people in Ireland die from heart disease or stroke. Hundreds of thousands of people in Ireland are currently living with heart conditions or the effects of a stroke.
As Ireland’s National heart & stroke Charity, we offer a range of services that aim to improve the quality of life and well-being of people after they have a heart event or stroke. Running the Dublin Marathon for the Irish Heart Foundation will help to fund the expansion of these services
What support will you receive?
We want you to be part of a team. We will share our experiences and help where needed in your training. We’ll send the gear and look after you at the event – so you have a run to remember whilst helping to raise funds for vital services
