Carson McDowell Team Take on 10k and 5k 'Run in the Dark' Challenge to Raise Money for the Mark Pollock Trust

09 November 2015


The Carson McDowell Charity Committee has coordinated a team of 18 runners to participate in the Belfast Life Style Sports 5K and 10K Run in the Dark 2015.

This charitable event, taking place on Wednesday 11 November, will raise funds and awareness for the Mark Pollock Trust. It is hoped that this in turn will facilitate the Trust’s aim of uniting people worldwide to help make a cure for paralysis a reality!

Mark, undefeated by blindness at the age of just 22, further suffered a spinal injury in 2010 that left him paralysed. The Life Style Run in the Dark plays a vital role in helping fund Mark with his mission to find a fast-track and sustainable cure for people suffering from incapacitating spinal cord injuries.

Thank you in advance for your generous donations and your support is greatly appreciated!

Please feel free to come along with your torches to cheer the team along on the night!

The team has set up a JustGiving page at the following link:

Any donations that you are able to make to help them reach their fundraising target would be greatly appreciated by the team and the Mark Pollock Trust.
