UK EVENTS 2017

 

WHAT?

 As darkness sweeps  around the globe on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th November, thousands will pull on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and head for the door. In over 50 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 Run in the Dark.

WHY?

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 paralysis for him and the millions of paralysed people around the world. The Run in the Dark plays a vital role in funding The Mark Pollock Trust's mission to find and connect people around the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis.

 

SIGN UP TO RUN IN THE DARK

All UK events will take place on Wednesday 15th November at 8pm.

*Please note Edinburgh is a pop-up event. Pop-Up events are small casual events organised by our fantastic network of volunteers around the world in their local area. As these are small events, they are not chip-timed
