We are going virtual!

We are asking the legal profession and supporters to run, walk, cycle, hike a collective 10,000km to get us from Ireland to Kolkata – and raise vital funds for the Peter McVerry Trust and The Hope Foundation in the process

Run, walk, cycle, hike in your local area or while on staycation, recording your distance on the idonate.ie or strava.com app. Our collective progress will be tracked on a map against the route to Kolkata.

Participants can do this in their own time from October 30 – November 8.

Despite current challenges, as well as uniting for one week to support the charities who need us now more than ever, this virtual event could help the health and well-being initiatives in firms and organisations.

When signing up, you will be directed to create a fundraising page on iDonate.ie. You can create your own individual page, set up a firm page for your company or join a firm page.

To even raise a portion of the €150k we raised in 2019 we really need commitment from the solicitor’s profession and our ongoing supporters. The people of Kolkata, as well as the normal challenges, are faced with Covid 19 and Cyclone Amphan. We need to do something. The Charities need us now more than ever, let’s not let them down!

Please be Responsible & Safe – adhere to Covid-19 restrictions

Who We're Helping

The Causes

The Hope Foundation is dedicated to promoting the protection of street and slum children in Calcutta and the most underprivileged in India. HOPE works to effect immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Peter McVerry Trust provides a wide range of services including homeless and housing services, drug treatment and detox services, as well as under-18 residential services to the homeless in Dublin.

You will be sent a PDF sponsorship card to print and use and will be redirected to set up your virtual run fundraising page where you can also track the distance you are running, walking, cycling or hiking from October 30 – November 8th.
