FinTrU raises £20,000 along with Charity Partner Include Youth in #RunningForYouth Marathon fundraising campaign
The funds were raised as a result of the #RunningForYouth marathon fundraising campaign which saw FinTrU enter 11 relay teams into the Belfast City Marathon on Monday 7 May.
Include Youth is a regional rights-based charity for young people in or leaving care from disadvantaged communities or whose rights are not being met to improve their employability and personal development.
FinTrU Founder and CEO, Darragh McCarthy, said
“We are proud to be able to raise such an impactful amount for our Charity Partner and friends, Include Youth. I want to thank all those who ran on the day, organised and donated to this great cause."
"This is a true testament to FinTrU employees and Include Youth who are demonstrating our company values through their partnership and their passion for a such a great cause.”
Director of Include Youth, Paddy Mooney, said
“I’d like to thank all those from FinTrU and Include Youth who gave up their time to fundraise and indeed run in the Belfast City Marathon.
"It certainly was a huge effort and a magnificent achievement.
“The amazing amount of money raised will see new laptops bought for the young people who are supported by Include Youths tutors to help them increase their skills and qualifications.”
