Register now for our 3rd virtual Run For A Life!
You can run, jog or walk either 2.5km, 5km or 10km to raise vital funds for the Irish Kidney Association and help raise awareness for Organ Donation. From Saturday 21st - 28th May 2022, choose any time and place that suits you!
To register for the run, we’re asking adults to donate a €10 registration fee, and children a €5 fee. There is also a family registration for €25, that covers 2 adults and 2 children. We have also introduced a new 7x7 Challenge this year - more details on that are below!
You will recieve an email containing your receipt, and a link to add your running time to our Strava Leaderboard if you wish!
Organ Donation means that over 5000 people around the country are currently enjoying the 'gift of life' after sucessful transplants. At any one time in Ireland there are between 550 and 600 people on waiting lists for organ transplants including heart, lung, liver, kidney and pancreas. The impact of this on their, and their friends and families, lives is huge. By simply speaking with your next-of-kin about your organ donation wishes, one day you could change the lives of many.
Our New Challenge
Did you know that one Organ Donor can save seven lives? To celebrate and highlight this amazing gift, we've introduced this new challenge to our annual Run For A Life event. There are free IKA t-shirts for those who reach their 7x7 fundraising target, and two €50 Home Store + More vouchers are up for grabs for the people who raise the most!
Take on the 7x7 Challenge on your own. Register for Run For A Life as an individual (€10) and get at least 7 people to each sponsor you for €7 - if you reach €49, or more, we will send you a free IKA t-shirt!
Choose the 7x7 Group Registration option for Run for a Life and register 7 people together at the discounted rate of €7 per person. Set up a JustGiving fundraising page using the link below and your challenge is for each of you to get at least 7 people to each sponsor you for €7. If you reach the group target of €343, or more, you will all get a free IKA t-shirt!
