Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark Pollock suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury in 2010 that left him paralysed. As Mark strives to walk again, his most complex journey is ahead of him - to find a cure for spinal cord injuries for him and the millions of paralysed people around the world. The Life Style Sports Run in the Dark plays a vital role in funding the The Mark Pollock Trust's mission to find and connect people around the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis.
As darkness sweeps around the globe on Wednesday, November 12th, thousands will pull on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and head for the door. In over 30 cities worldwide, they will be part of a living light show flowing through the streets like lava. Those same people will be helping to fast-track a cure for paralysis as part of the Life Style Sports Run in the Dark. Join us in one of our 5 official locations, Dublin, Cork, Belfast, London and Manchester, or join with our volunteers in pop-up events in cities worldwide.
