Boston – Young Leaders Global 5K 2015

Date : 26th September, 2015


Dear Boston Young Leaders,

We are excited to kick off the 2nd Annual “The Irish Run the World Global 5k”,
which brings the collective chapters of The Ireland Fund Young Leaders
from around the world together to host one event across all cities. The
event will take place on Saturday, September 26th and will span over 20
hours and cover 75km in 15 cities and 6 countries.

The race will start
in Brisbane, Australia and conclude with our Young Leaders in Los

Chris Hagan has once again taken the lead as our event Chair and Pat Burek and Jimmy Geraghty are our Co-Chairs.

Runners, friends, volunteers welcome.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support.

Best regards, Steve and Mimi email us


Each chapter is challenged to raise $6,000 worth of sponsorship and we need your help. We’ve attached a Sponsorship Opportunities document and hope you can help generate both corporate and personal sponsors. Sponsors at the appropriate levels will be listed on the official “The Irish Run the World Global 5k” t-shirts (a sure collector’s item!).
