Event: Run in the Dark Dublin – 5k or 10k run in Dublin City Centre
Date: 7th November 2018
Every November, as darkness sweeps the globe, thousands of people from over 50 cities will pull on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and hit the streets to Run in the Dark.
Join thousands of fellow runners in Dublin to Run in the Dark on the 7th November 2018 and support our ongoing research to find a cure for paralysis in our lifetime.
You can choose between running 5km or 10km… and if your running shoes are a little dusty, you can even walk the 5km route.
The Dublin event will leave from CHQ, Dublin City Centre at 8.00pm on 7th November.
Every donation, every step, every study, moves us towards a cure for paralysis and enabling people to walk again.
