Calcutta Run Goes 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 or 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.

Sign Up Now

Despite current challenges we can all unite for one week to support the charities who need us now more than ever, while also supporting health and well-being initiatives in our firms and organisations.

Watch the video message from Maureen Forrest, Hon. Director of The Hope Foundation and learn more about how to sign up below.

When signing up, you will be directed to create a fundraising page on 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 €300k we raised in 2019 we need you, our colleagues and our loyal supporters to commit to go the distance with us.

The people of Kolkata are facing all their daily challenges as well as the devastation caused by Covid 19 and Cyclone Amphan. It’s also clear that our homeless crisis in Ireland is not abating and with winter coming more supports are critical now. We need to do something. Our Charities and the people who rely on them, need us now more than ever, so let’s not let them down!
