This year, Flora wanted to recognise the amazing and inspirational women who participate in the Flora Women's Mini Marathon with the Flora Heart Heroes competition.
Receiving almost 70 applications, the judging panel found selecting the shortlist a humbling experience.
"I wish to thank everyone who took the time to send in an application. All of the amazing women who were nominated deserve to be recognised for their achievements. The three women selected represent the best of what this event is all about," said Niamh Lennon, brand manager Flora.
From today, you can cast your vote for the Flora Women's Mini Marathon Flora Heart Hero at www.floraheartheroes.com.
Voting closes on June 5, with the winner receiving a €1,000 cheque for their charity and the two runners-up both receiving a €500 cheque for their charities. These will be presented on the day of the women's mini marathon.
