A massive well done to Sean Rath, EHS Manager AirconMech and AMV Systems, who achieved his couch to 10k run in style for the Run in the Dark Charity Challenge which took place last night from Wexford Quay. Thankfully the rain didn’t materialise on this bitterly cold night.
This poignant event raises much-needed funds for the Mark Pollock Trust. Many of you will know Mark as the adventure athlete who competed in ultra-endurance races following the loss of his sight in 1998. In fact, he was the first blind person to race to the south pole. Tragically in 2010, Mark fell from a second-story window which nearly killed him. He broke his back leaving him paralysed. Mark’s new expedition is to cure paralysis in our lifetime.
Well done again Sean! You did yourself and us proud!
