The 2019 edition of Calcutta Run – The Legal Fundraiser launched on March 7th at Walkers Global in Dublin.
Law Society director general Ken Murphy said that the solicitors’ profession was as committed as ever to helping fight homelessness in Ireland and abroad.
109 representatives from the legal profession – representing 30 firms and organisations, attended the official launch and the Managing Partners present committed to running, cycling and ensuring that there would be a high turnout this year!
In the past 20 years Calcutta Run has raised a staggering €4 million for The Hope Foundation and Peter McVerry Trust who have made lifelong commitments to eradicating extreme poverty and homelessness in Ireland and Calcutta, India.
Funds raised by participants in the Calcutta Run Cork event are given to SHARE as well, a local charity helping the elderly poor.
