Purple Run 2019 – Highlights

Our fourth annual Purple Run took place once again in Dublin’s Phoenix Park on Sunday, March 24th – the event is our nationwide celebration of World Down Syndrome Day. 

The day was filled with fun, friendship and a bit of exercise for all the family – plus lots and lots of purple!

We’d like to give our thanks and appreciation to all of our charity partners, event supporters, volunteers and of course to everyone who took part in the run – we had over 2,200 people take part in this year’s event which is over a 1,000 more than last years run.

Thank you all so very much for making this year’s Purple Run the biggest, brightest and purplest yet!

Check out the amazing highlight photos from the day below.
