Lucy Kennedy Encourages Women to Support Irish and Fundraise via iDonate this Marathon Season

Ireland’s leading fundraising platform,, is working with TV presenter, breakfast radio host and busy mum of three Lucy Kennedy, to help launch their marathon competition for fundraisers, ahead of the Mini Marathon season in June. 

Lucy, who is a big supporter of Irish charities and an advocate for women making time to look after their mental and physical health, is working with the fundraising platform to help make fundraising easier for women taking part in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon in Dublin and participants joining the Cork City Marathon this summer. 

iDonate have launched an initiative that will see participants who fundraise using the platform for the Women’s Mini Marathon or Cork City Marathon, entered into a draw to win a holiday worth €2,500. Anyone who raises over €100 for a charity on iDonate will be in with a chance of winning  this fantastic prize, as well as a €2,500 donation to their chosen charity. Marathon participants can set up a personal fundraising page on iDonate now for either of the June marathons to be in with a chance to win.  

Whether you walk the mini marathon with a friend, or you want to set a goal to improve your fitness, I would encourage everyone to dust off their runners, set up a fundraising page on iDonate and get moving. If nothing else, the fantastic prize that’s up for grabs should serve as a good motivator! ”   

iDonate is committed to making giving easier, with a range of fundraising offerings available to Irish consumers. The Irish owned, family run business has supported over 4000 causes since its founding in 2011 with over 2 million donors nationwide.
