Calcutta Run

ALG and the Law Society are very proud to have established the Calcutta Run in 1999. Since then, the run has taken place every year and has grown in strength and numbers raising approximately €5m for the Peter McVerry Trust and the Hope Foundation. On average, ALG raises €20,000 annually with over 140 people from ALG involved in the event.
