About Melbourne Global 5k

The Global 5k, the 4th Annual Irish Run the World race.

On Saturday September 23rd, the collective chapters of The Ireland Fund Young Leaders from around the world will come together to host one event across 17 cities and 7 different countries.

Starting in Brisbane, Australia, the Young Leaders will run a 5km in their respective city before passing the ‘virtual baton’ off to the next city. The Global 5k will conclude when the last young leader crosses the finish line in San Francisco!

All funds raised will go to benefit the Australian Young Leaders chosen charities for 2017 Suas, who partner with designated disadvantaged (DEIS) schools across Ireland to deliver literacy support to 8 to 14 year olds who are struggling with reading and writing; and the Go Foundation who offer scholarships to Indigenous Australian students in public schools.
