Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke Red Dress Fun Run 2023 has raised a massive £73,000.
MACE was once again proud to support the 2023 NICHS Red Dress Fun Run. MACE is dedicated to driving awareness and raising vital funds for Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke, supporting local people in our communities, and helping to make a real difference. All money raised through MACE stores goes straight to NICHS who are providing a life-saving service and it’s thanks to support from our retailers and customers that enables NICHS to continue its vital work to help rebuild thousands of lives.
Tara Currie, Events and Marketing Manager at the charity says; “We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported this year’s Red Dress Fun Run. The support we received this year has been phenomenal and to raise £73,000 is just fantastic. It will go a long way in helping us rebuild thousands of lives and make a lasting change towards heart health in Northern Ireland…”
“As a charity, we rely on the public’s support because almost 90% of our care and prevention services and research is funded exclusively by donations. This is why our partnership with MACE NI is so important, not just for the Red Dress Fun Run but also throughout the year. The funds raised from this event are vital in enabling us to continue to support the local people who need us and to provide life-changing services for them and their families...”
“Many people choose to take part in the Red Dress Fun Run in memory of a loved one who has sadly passed away or are suffering from a chest, heart, or stroke related condition. The Red Dress Fun Run presents the perfect opportunity to support the charity with this all-inclusive fun run, people of every generation, age and ability are encouraged to take part by running, walking, dancing, skipping, or wheeling the route...”
Diane Anthony from MACE adds; “We are so proud to support NICHS, and this fantastic event, for another year. It was great to see so many people get behind this worthy cause. We are already looking forward to next year’s Red Dress Fun Run and playing our part in raising vital funds to help local people from across Northern Ireland.”
