100k Challenge for Irish Guide Dog Day 2021 #100k4gdd Fund


The Macquarie Dublin office has a special association with the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind. A number of years ago we sponsored the training of a puppy “MacDub” to become a qualified Assistance Dog. MacDub was placed with his family and quickly became “Best Friend” to Leon, a young boy with autism. MacDub is still working away as professionally as ever with his family and making a huge difference in their lives. This year Macquarie AirFinance in Dublin is getting involved with the IGDB annual fundraising campaign and taking on the challenge of walking, running or cycling 100km throughout the month of May! The money raised will enable the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind to change the lives of people who are vision impaired and the families of children with autism.
