Belfast – Annual Global 5k 2018

The largest- ever group assembled at Queen’s University Sport in Belfast to take part in The Ireland Funds Young Leaders Global 5k!

Over 40 runners joined Young Leaders across 17 cities globally to take part in the annual event. We were delighted to have representatives from KPMG Belfast and Digital DNA who were local sponsors of the event.  The team from Integrated Education Fund also took part, allowing members to meet with one of the brilliant organisations supported by The Ireland Funds. It was a great chance for new members to learn more about the work of The Ireland Funds and for the chapter to mark its 2nd anniversary in Belfast.

There was great competition to cross the line first, however our fastest man was Fintan Murray, and women were Sophie Pollock & Sarah Toner (both from KPMG Belfast)!
