On 17 November 2021, EisnerAmper Ireland staff members joined thousands of runners to partake in the virtual Run in the Dark which supports ongoing research to find a cure for paralysis.
This is the fifth consecutive year ‘Team EisnerAmper’ has participated in Run in the Dark. This year’s event was held in a virtual setting similar to last year. Following the impact of Covid-19, Run in the Dark created an app to allow participants to run safely within their own area, but to still virtually join thousands of others walking or running 5k and 10k around the world.
Run in the Dark is the main fundraiser for the Mark Pollock Trust which is aiming to find a cure paralysis in our lifetime. Unbroken by blindness in 1998, adventure athlete Mark Pollock was left paralysed in 2010. Now, with the team at the Mark Pollock Trust, he is exploring the intersection where humans and technology collide, catalysing collaborations that have never been done before and in doing so unlocking $1 billion to cure paralysis in our lifetime.
