A group of staff members from the Taxback.com Dublin office braved the elements for the Aware Christmas Run.
Anyone living in Dublin will probably agree that last Saturday morning’s weather lent itself more to watching TV in front of the fire rather than donning the running gear and heading to the Phoenix Park.
However, a group of us had pledged to do the Christmas race for Aware as part of our corporate social responsibility activities and, because it was for such a good cause, we didn’t want to cancel.
The torrential rain had most people well and truly soaked before they even crossed the start-line. However, spirits were good and there were plenty of festive accessories and headwear to be seen.
Formed in 1985 in Dublin, Aware has grown to become a nationwide charity that provides information, support and information for people with depression. The money raised by Saturday’s run will go towards funding the services offered by the charity which include telephone and email support services and online CBT-based courses.
Well done to all the people that battled the elements for Aware. See you next year!
