On November 12th Atomic Sport joined 15,000 runners around the world to take part in the Life Style Sports Run in the Dark. It was a pleasure to bring together two clients, Life Style Sports, Ireland's largest sports retailer and Run in the Dark, who's leader is Mark Pollock. Mark went blind at the age of 22 and in an accident was paralysed a few years ago. Mark, once an explorer of Deserts and Poles, is now searching for a cure for paralysis. The Run helps fund his mission.
The team completed the 10K run in times running from 45mins to 55mins. Lot's of grimacing and groans in the office were part of the soundtrack the day after the run but there was also a feeling of a job well done. And hopefully we're getting one step closer to a cure for spinal injuries.
