RTÉ's Nuala Carey, model Sarah Morrissey and Fine Gael TD Áine Collins, today joined together to undertake a fitness workout to launch the One in 1,000 campaign for the VHI Women's Mini Marathon.
Under the watchful eye of 24-year-old personal trainer and Northern Ireland Men's Physique Champion 2013, Ben Mudge, who lives every day with cystic fibrosis, the trio are appealing for one thousand women to come together and help raise vital funds for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.
The 10-kilometre VHI Women's Mini Marathon takes place in Dublin on Monday June 1. Women can run, jog or walk and the Mini Marathon is open to all levels of fitness.
Weather presenter Nuala Carey has been taking part in this event for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland for three years now. "It really does have a fantastic feelgood factor with everyone coming together to support a vital cause, raise funds, have fun and make friends for life."
Deputy Áine Collins has a very personal reason for supporting Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. "As many people know, cystic fibrosis is an issue very close to my heart as my youngest daughter Lily is living with CF. Our family is so lucky in that Lily is fighting fit and enjoying life to the fullest as every young child should."
