In the past 17 years the Calcutta run has raised over €3.2M to support homeless youths in Dublin and Calcutta.  The fundraising target this year has been set at €200,000.

All participants are asked to raise an individual fundraising amount of at least €100.  Whether  by organising a whip-round for a fiver from family and friends, by setting up an online fundraising page (if you want to avoid the face to face element you can simply share your page on social media) or by chipping in personally (unlike many other charity runs, there is no registration fee for the Calcutta Run).  

THE CHARITIES

100% of all participants’ funds raised goes directly to GOAL and the Peter McVerry Trust to help homeless children in Dublin and Calcutta

Dublin’s homeless youths through Peter McVerry Trust will benefit from these targets:

  • €100 will provide a self-starter kit for someone entering one of the Trust’s residential services.
  • €125 will provide a self-starter kit, as well as providing toiletries and basic clothing for someone coming off the street into one of the Trust’s services.
  • €150 will provide a self-starter kit, as well as safe and warm overnight accommodation for one person or lunches for 50 people in the drop-in centre.

 

Calcutta’s homeless youths will benefit from these targets:

 

  • €100 will provide an auto chlorination system bringing safe drinking water to families preventing the spread of disease.
  • €125 will provide an auto chlorination system and basic numeric skills training for adults.
  • €150 will provide an auto chlorination system as well as health and life skill training for teenage boys and girls or one year of educational essentials for 5 children.
