Over the weekend of Sat 7 and Sun 8 September, Ireland Funds chapters from around the world will take part in the sixth annual 'Irish Run the World' - a 5 km fun run, passing the virtual baton from one city to the next in this global event.
All welcome to join us for the run - no registration fee but and any voluntary donation you may like to make will be much appreciated by our beneficiaries.
Monies that we raise from the run will help to fund the projects that we are supporting this coming year including Boys Town, Filos Community Services, Singapore Irish Rugby Club and LASALLE College of Arts, supporting disadvantaged youth and adolescents, outreach to needy families in the community and the McNally Legacy project.
Many thanks to our fantastic sponsors for the event, Ufit and Insih Bia.
