25th AnniversaRy

On May 27, participants will run or walk the Blackhall Place-Phoenix Park 5K or 10K routes with friends and family. An excellent excuse to fundraise together while also improving wellbeing and health.

Next year is the 25th Annivesary so we will be out in force, raising €300,000 for The Hope Foundation and Peter McVerry Trust. All proceeds raised go directly to the two charities. So please spread the word among friends, family and colleagues.

This year, team awards will be awarded to firms in recognition of all their hard work.

The Cork Run 2023 - date tbc

The Cork Calcutta Run will take place on May 29th to raise money for 2 very worthy Cork homeless charities – SHARE and The Hope Foundation. Join a 5km walk/fun run in Blackrock – suitable for all ages and abilities – followed by a free BBQ in the grounds of Blackrock National Hurling Club.
