Thank you for your interest in raising funds to support the Mark Pollock Trust by taking part in Run in the Dark.

Everything we do at Run in the Dark is about inspiring people to build resilience and collaborate with others so that, together, they achieve more than they thought possible. For some that means gathering a group of friends or colleagues to train hard and get fit. For others it means building a team of experts to perform better.

At the Mark Pollock Trust, it means supporting Mark Pollock to deal with the ongoing impact of his catastrophic spinal cord injury.

The next step is to get your fundraising page set-up which takes less than 1 minute.

If you’ve already created your page, share the link with your family and friends.

Once you’ve created your page, you can use our collection of images, graphics and videos below to help you get started. You can share them on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp in a single click.

Fundraising Tips & Tricks

Now you’ve set up your fundraising page, you can start on the fun stuff – personalising your page and sharing it with friends and family. You can find some really helpful fundraising tips here.

  1. Set up your fundraising page on JustGiving and make sure to add a profile photo.
  2. Tell them why you’re doing it. Include a line about the cause you’re running for, so people understand your motivations and know where their money is going. E.g. “Doing a 5k Run in the Dark to support the Mark Pollock Trust.”
  3. Share the link with your family and friends across all your social media and communications platforms.
  4. Images and videos work well – feel free to use our selection of photos, graphics and video below.


Please do not refer to the Mark Pollock Trust as a registered charity in carrying out your fundraising. The Mark Pollock Trust is a discretionary trust set up pursuant to section 198A of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997 (Special Trusts For Incapacitated Persons).
