The Law Society of Northern Ireland is delighted to announce that the 'Legal Walk/Run' which took place in May 2017 has raised over £10,000 for Marie Curie, the Society's chosen charity of the year.
The 'Legal Walk/Run' was organised by the Law Society of Northern Ireland.
Over 300 participants dressed in bright yellow t-shirts set off from outside the High Court in Belfast for their 5k walk/run to the Titanic Centre and back to start the position. Amongst those participating were senior members of the Judiciary in Northern Ireland including the Lord Chief Justice, Sir Declan Morgan.
Commenting the President of the Law Society, Ian Huddleston, said:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated, offered support, ran or walked and for making the inaugural Legal Walk/Run such a resounding success in raising over £10,000 for Marie Curie.
To the solicitor firms, members of the Bar and our judiciary who offered their support and participated, my sincere thanks.
Particular thanks also go to McCartan Turkington Breen who allowed their car park to be used as a registration station".
