Charity event proves to be runaway success!

Over two hundred members of the legal profession in Northern Ireland joined colleagues for the return of the Legal Walk / Run through Belfast City Centre in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI (LLNI).

This is the first time the Legal Walk / Run has taken place following a delay caused by the pandemic.

Despite heavy rain, participants from all parts of the legal profession including solicitors, barristers, Judiciary, and support staff, set off from outside the High Court in Belfast for their 5k walk/run to the Titanic Centre and back again. 

The Legal Walk / Run was organised by Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI (LLNI) the only charity in Northern Ireland dedicated to blood cancer research and all funds raised stay in Northern Ireland to support Clinicians, Scientists and Students researching these diseases.

Commenting the President of the Law Society, Brigid Napier, said:

“I am delighted that in our centenary year that so many members of the legal profession took part in the return of Legal Walk / Run in support of the Society’s chosen charity of the year Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI (LLNI).

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated, offered support, ran, or walked despite the bad weather and for making this event such a resounding success.” 

Richard Buchanan, Chair of Leukaemia and Lymphoma NI said;

“As a local charity, we are so grateful for the Law Society’s support in this, their Centenary year. Fundraising is challenging at present, but the money raised from the Legal Walk/Run makes a huge difference in helping us to keep the research going.

Thank you to all who took part, from LLNI and from the scientists - Research is improving quality of life and helping more people survive blood cancer than ever before.”
