Fundraising infographic final EURO.jpg

Join us at Letterkenny Town Park on Wednesday 15th November, 2017 for a 5k run/walk at 8pm.

Your €25 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its €500,000 fundraising aim this year to fast-track a cure for paralysis, which will change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

There are limited places available so make sure to sign up early so you don't miss out!

THE CHAMPION:

This year's Donegal run will again be championed by Sonia McGarvey, mother of Noirin who sustained a spinal cord injury at the age of 4.

The inspiration comes from watching Mark Pollock’s documentary ‘Unbreakable’ and the similarities struck a cord- the grueling rehabilitation, learning to live with a spinal cord injury and searching for the cure.

The Route:

This year's event will take place at Letterkenny Town Park.
Thanks to Letterkenny parkrun for the idea - check out the route here www.parkrun.ie/letterkenny/course/ 

The course is 5km long and consists of three laps run anti clockwise. 
Run packs and refreshments (post event) will be distributed in the vestry (old St Conal's Chapel) in Letterkenny Town Park.
There are wheelchair accessible toilets available here.
