Run in the Dark
In 2010, Northern Irishman Mark Pollock, suffered a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed. Instead of
giving up, Pollock inspired thousands to help in the funding to explore what can be done in spinal cord injury recovery. Every year on the 16th of November, 50 cities worldwide gather in the dark to run in support of finding a cure to paralysis. Join thousands of runners, departing from Custom House Quay in Dublin from 8pm.
