The Irish Run the World 5K Fun Run in Brisbane, Queensland on Saturday, 23 September 2017 is part of a series of 5km charity fun runs which take place on the same day in 17 cities around the world.
Starting in Brisbane, the Young Leaders will run 5km in their respective city before passing the "virtual baton" off to the next city. The Global 5K will conclude when the last young leader crosses the finish line in San Francisco!
All funds raised will go to benefit the Australian Young Leaders chosen charities for 2017 Suas, who partner with designated disadvantaged (DEIS) schools across Ireland to deliver literacy support to 8 to 14-year-olds who are struggling with reading and writing; and the Go Foundation who offer scholarships to Indigenous Australian students in public schools.
