As darkness swept around the globe yesterday, thousands of people – including Ben and Leo from the London Chartwell team – pulled on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and headed into the night. In over 30 cities worldwide, these runners were part of a living light show flowing through the parks like lava. The reason? To help fund research in finding a cure for spinal cord injury, as part of the Life Style Sports’ Run in the Dark.

Ben and Leo - Run in the Dark

The Life Style Sports Run in the Dark plays a vital role in funding The Mark Pollock Trust’s mission to find and connect people around the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis. Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark Pollock suffered a tragic spinal cord injury in 2010 that left him paralysed. As Mark strives to walk again, his most complex journey lies ahead of him – to find a cure for spinal cord injuries for him and the millions of paralysed people around the world.

With 100% of money raised going directly to The Mark Pollock Trust, Chartwell were proud to join the global movement to raise awareness on spinal cord injury. Click here for more information.
