DkIT Dundalk 10k Raises €9,000 for Local Charities17 June 2021
The DkIT Dundalk 10k 2021 once again took the form of a virtual run and proved to be very successful with over 1150 people registering. Two local charities were selected and donations of €4,000 each were made to Cara Cancer Support and Rape Crisis North East. €1,000 was also donated to the ‘Save Our Sonia’ campaign.
The donation of €9,000 brings to almost €50,000 in charitable donations from DkIT since first organising the event in 2014.
Speaking at the presentations, DkIT Sports and Societies Officer Derek Crilly said;
“we’re delighted with the support that our event received and with 1150 registrations, this year we had the largest participation to date. This support enabled us to make significant donations to three very worthy charities. Through organising the event we get to see the fantastic work that these charities do and we hope that our donations can help in some small way to continue this work.
The event receives sponsorship from the following local businesses:
- DKIT Sport
- Recruit Island
- Dundalk Credit Union
- Dundalk Retail Park
- Intact Software
Commenting on the sponsorship, Derek said;
“we are very grateful to all of our sponsors for their continued dedication to our event. Their sponsorship allows us to put on a high class event whilst also supporting charitable organisations. Planning for April 2022 has begun and we’re looking forward to welcoming runners and walkers back to DkIT for this great event.
