Volunteer needed

On a very different note to our usual mini-marathon updates: World Vision is searching for a volunteer for our Dublin office.
Ideally, the person would be available 2-4 hours a week on a continuous basis to help us out with administrative tasks such as collating sponsorship materials and data entry.
Have a read of the full description on our website - just click here.
If you have any questions, just call Michael or Rosaleen on 1850 366 283, email us at or just leave a comment here on the blog and we'll get back to you straight away!

Have a lovely May bank holiday break!

Fundraising Packs

With Team World Vision Ireland growing and demand for fundraising packs on the rise we have run out of t-shirts....But fear not, more are on order and will be delivered next week.

So if you haven't ordered your fundraising pack yet, give John a call on 1850 366 283 or 01-498 08 00 and he'll send you a full pack once the new shirts have arrived. If you have ordered a pack over the last couple of days, it may not arrive until next week.

Also an update on one of our international team members: Congratulations to Ryan Hall who completed the Boston Marathon for World Vision and finished in 3rd place!
His time was a staggering 2:09:40 for the 26 mile race!
Tempted to beat the Ryan next year? The Boston Marathon 2010 is on the 19th of April.

Ryan and Sara Hall all geared up for World Vision!

Feeling good

Am glad to say I had a great training weekend. Got a run in on both Saturday and Sunday and with the buses on strike I got a brisk 45 minute walk to to work this morning as well.

My morning tea and muffin at 11.00 felt well deserved.

It's great to see that the mini marathon filled to maximum capacity and that there's so many women out there up for the challenge. Unfortunately, some people left it to the last day to register and when they went online at 11.00 am they were told it was too late. Ah well, there's plenty of other races you could do and of course there's always next year.

As most of you know Xpose presenter Lorraine Keane is running the mini marathon for Team World Vision. Check out her column in the Sunday World to see how she's getting on

Lorraine sponsors a little boy from Tanzania and we're delighted to have her on the team.
