Get Involved!

The collective chapters of The Ireland Fund Young Leaders from around the world will host an event together – The Irish Run the World, a Global 5K race.

On Saturday, September. 26, 2015, the event will span over 20hrs, and cover 75km, in 15 different cities and 6 different countries.

Starting in Brisbane, Australia, the Young Leaders will run a 5km in their respective city before passing the ‘virtual baton’ off to the next city.

The Global 5k will conclude when the last Young Leader crosses the finish line in Los Angeles!

You can support by running or by making a gift.

Please consider donating or joining us in the participating cities for this fantastic event.

All funds raised will go to benefit The Ireland Funds Promising Ireland Campaign to assist worthy charities across the island of Ireland and Irish causes around the world.

Since its establishment, The Ireland Funds Young Leaders Society has raised over $1 million for the work of The Ireland Funds.
