Belfast Marathon 2016

This year Clarke Facades are entering two relay teams into the 2016 Belfast Marathon on May 2nd.

We have chosen to partner up and raise funds for the Causeway Down Syndrome Association.

As a charity, they rely almost entirely on voluntary donations. The charity currently need £2 million per annum to operate and we want to help them raise that target.
