Calcutta Run – the Legal Fundraiser is calling runners of all levels, family, kids and friends to kick off the summer by either running or walking the 10km or shorter distance of 5km on Saturday, 20 May at Blackhall Place. Bring the whole office, your family and friends and even your dog along to enjoy the scenic route through the Phoenix Park.
As a reward for all the hard work, runners and walkers will receive a goodie bag and can then relax and enjoy the BBQ, bar, live music, market, DJ and fun activities at the Finish Line Festival in the grounds of Blackhall Place. If that isn’t exhausting enough, participants can also hit a club that night for the official after-party.
ALL proceeds raised by you will go directly to the homeless children of Dublin and Calcutta.
We believe that it is very important to continue to assist in our charity partner's trojan work in Calcutta. The funds raised by all participants will do just this. Projects in Calcutta include educating children working in brick kilns, providing wash facilities and building mother and child units.
Peter McVerry Trust provides a wide range of services including homeless and housing services, drug treatment and detox services as well as under-18 residential services to the homeless in Dublin. The minimum number of people experiencing homelessness in Ireland as of 30th September 2015 is over 5,100. It is vital that we continue supporting Peter Mc Verry and his team to ensure the homeless are cared for.
