Join the Mini Marathon organized by DEBRA Ireland and have a chance to meet Robert:
Fancy heading on a date with Robert Sheehan? There’s only 10km standing in your way!
DEBRA Ireland have come up with an ingenious way of encouraging women to don their trainers and hit the road for this year’s Flora Women’s Mini Marathon, with all ladies who run the race for the charity getting to meet Love/Hate actor Robert Sheehan and his brother Brendan (Mr Fitness Ireland) for cocktails!
DEBRA Ireland are appealing to women around Ireland to sign up for event and run, jog or crawl the 10km race to support patients and families living with the debilitating skin condition epirdermolysis bullosa (EB).
Robert was convinced to get involved after he was contacted by DEBRA Patient Ambassador Emma Fogarty (29), who has already won the hearts of Colin Farrell and Johnny Sexton and made it her mission to get the Love/Hate actor to get involved. Emma is the oldest person in Ireland living with recessive dystrophic EB and hails from Abbeyleix just down the road from Robert’s family home in Co. Laois.
“I sat down with Emma and was so struck that she was such a vibrant, engaging and enthusiastic person. She hooked me into the whole thing!” he said.
All of those who take part in the race for DEBRA Ireland will get to meet Robert and Brendan for drinks, while there will also be a special competition to win a one-on-one date with the actor himself!
To get involved, all you need to do is sign themselves and four friends up for DEBRA Ireland in this year’s marathon and you could be gazing into those dreamy eyes in no time. Hurry though, the offer is valid for the next few days only so log on to www.debraireland.org for details. The official closing date for entry is April 18th, but it may close earlier if full.
All proceeds from the event go towards providing services to those living with the skin condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB) better known as butterfly skin.
