TCD Wishes the College’s Dublin City Marathon Runners Good Luck

Posted on: 23 October 2009

Trinity College graduate, Mark Pollock, will lead a group of 50 in support of Trinity’s educational access initiatives when Trinity Takes To The Streets for the Dublin City Marathon on Monday 26th next.  The runners, consisting of students, alumni, staff and friends, are running (or walking) to raise vital funding for the Trinity Access Programmes (TAP), National Institute for Intellectual Disability (NIID) and the Student Hardship Fund.  Also taking part in support of the TTTTS initiatives will be Charmaine Kenny, former TCD scholar and current Rose of Tralee and Professor Eda Sagarra, Fellow Emeritus and former Pro-Chancellor of the University.

If you would like to join the many supporters on the day you can applaud the Trinity team as they pass the TTTTS cheering points at either the Chapelizod Gate from 9.30am or the Terenure Crossroads from 10.30am.  Alternatively, you can support the initiatives by either sponsoring a runner or making a donation.  Trinity Foundation Board and Alumni Groups have committed to match every euro raised by participants and supporters up to a total of €50,000, effectively doubling the funding available for students and programmes.

Trinity College Dublin wishes all the TTTTS runners and supporters every good wish for the marathon ahead and, whatever the outcome, is delighted with the level of participation and support by such an enthusiastic team for three very worthy causes.

In advance of the Dublin City Marathon, TTTTS runners Mark Pollock, Charmaine Kelly and Polo Crosbie will feature on Setanta Sports, The Hub, at 5.30pm on Sunday, October 25th.  For further information on the runners or how to make a donation see the TTTTS website.
