Mini Marathon for Migrant Rights!

These amazing women are doing the Mini Marathon for migrant rights - are you? 

Run for rights, walk for workers or jog for justice - join us on June 5th for the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon! Have fun, enjoy the run and support immigrant workers to campaign for fairness and equality.

All proceeds go to leadership supports and training with migrant worker leaders and activists in Justice for the Undocumented (JFU), the Domestic Workers Action Group (DWAG), the My Fair Home campaign with Home Care workers, and the Labour of Love campaign for au pairs. 2017 is a year of organising and leadership!

  • COST: €21 to register
  • DATE: Bank Holiday Monday 5th June @ 2pm
  • DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: 28th April 2017 (but please register NOW because places might fill up before then and we don't want you to be left out!)

There are THREE ways you can register

  1. For easy online registration, click here: vhiwomensminimarathon.ie debit/credit card is needed for this type of registration.
  2. The Evening Herald newspaper will include a registration form on WEDNESDAYS and SATURDAYS. Fill out the form and send in with a postal order (*see note below re postal order). You can also collect a registration form from Raziah at MRCI reception.
  3. Only if you cannot do either of the above: worker leaders can help you register & run with the MRCI.

When you've registered, call in to MRCI at 37 Dame Street for your sponsorship form, and look forward to feeling amazing at the finish line on June 5th!

*Please note that only ONE postal order is needed for several registrations. For example, if a group of 10 want to send their registration forms in together they can do so along with just one postal order. BUT make sure all names that are been sent along on registration forms are wrote on the back of the postal order!!
