Mollie’s High Five Fun Run Raises over £6K

To mark the 5th anniversary of Mollie’s diagnosis with rhabdomyosarcoma, Mollie’s Arc held a fun run on Saturday 2nd September 2023. The event offered 3K, 5K and virtual run options and took place at Moira Demesne, Northern Ireland, with the support of Jog Moira running club.

This fantastic event raised over £6K with 300 people attending and local businesses providing refreshments. All runners received a tailor-made Mollie’s Arc running buff and wore Alice’s Arc running vests from previous sales. These were a great talking point and reminder about why the charity was created.

Mollie’s Mum commented: ” The five year anniversary was always a mental goal and although we know the risk of relapse does not completely disappear after five years, it still feels like a ‘big’ milestone worth marking and acknowledging how far Mollie and our family have come.”

Mollie’s Arc was formed when we launched the Arcs model in 2021. It is such a pleasure to work with Mollie, her family, friends and community. We are so grateful for all their support. We are all driven by a desire to work together to defeat rhabdomyosarcoma. #thearcs #rhabdomyosarcoma #togetherwebringhope
