The time of year has come again when thousands of people take to the streets to support Run in the Dark. This run is for a great cause and connects people all around the world. Run in the Dark is a vital part of the funding for the Mark Pollock Trust. Mark Pollock was blinded in 1998 and later in 2010 suffered a spinal cord injury that left him paralysed. Mark is determined to walk again and find a cure for paralysis. This is not only himself but for millions of others around the world. The Mark Pollock Trust’s mission is to find and connect people all over the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis.
When and where?
Run in the Dark is happening this November 15th to 22nd across the world. There are 5 official locations including Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Manchester and London. While pop-up events are also happening in other cities worldwide. Check out the website for your nearest Run in the Dark.
**Note the Dublin event was changed from Tuesday the 14th of November to Wednesday the 22nd of November. This is due to the Ireland international game against Denmark. Come on you boys in green!
Not only can you support the cause by running, donating but also by volunteering at one of the events. Please following the link to find out what volunteer opportunities are near you.
This is a great cause, why not sign up with your friends as entry is still open and there is still time to fit in a couple of preparation runs.
If you have any queries regarding running, running injuries or require a running biomechanical assessment please contact the clinic today to book an appointment with one of our chartered physiotherapists.
