Mini Marathon 2015: Lorraine in shock with Micra win
Lorraine Phelan from Ballyfermot was the lucky winner of this year’s Micra, kindly donated by event sponsor Nissan.
When her name was announced, she immediately began to well up, and the applause that welcomed her win was heartfelt.
This is the first time in six years that she’s participated in the event, but The Irish Cancer Society, for whom she was walking the course, is near to her heart, and during the rest of the year, she devotes extra time to raising funds for the charity. When asked what she think s her family’s reaction will be, she said: “I think they’re going to just drop! I think I’m going to as well!”
