We are going virtual!

Virtual Calcutta Run - €265,000 raised to far! Virtual Calcutta Run 2020 is now over. Thank you to everyone who participated this year. 1000 of you collectively made the 10,000KM from Dublin to Kolkata and back!

We can’t tell you how delighted the charities are, as expectations were surpassed and participants broke all targets for a Virtual Run. This was unchartered territory for everyone involved and raising close to €270,000 amount will go a long way in a difficult year for both charities.

If you did not participate but would like to contribute, please click on the Make a Donation above.

Thank you for the continued support and see you in 2021. Stay safe and well.

Who We're Helping
