Meet One Inspirational Woman – Maureen Armstrong

For Mrs Maureen Armstrong, aged in her 94 year; this will be her 24th year in which she has participated in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon.

The oldest participant in this event; Mrs Armstrong is encouraging other women to come join her in the quest to raise funds for people and their families affected by cancer.

To this end, she will lead out her team of like minded females in this year’s Mini Marathon on June 3rd 2018 next, in support of the Irish Cancer Society.

Together with her daughter Martina,  both ladies have set up a local walking group, called simply “Thurles Walkers”, to further encourage women of all ages to get involved and to get into training.

Mrs Armstrong is adamant that the Irish Cancer Society is reliant on donations not just to fund cancer research but also grant free support for patients and their family members.

Remember, as many as 40,000 people will be diagnosed with cancer here in Ireland this year, and it is important that no one is left to face this devastating disease alone.

Mrs Armstrong will be just one of thousands of inspirational women taking part in the Mini Marathon this year, all of whom will be raising funds for deserving charities.
