With ESOMAR Congress coming up next week, ZappiStore is heading to Dublin – and we’ll be carving out some time for something besides Market Research for a change.

On Tuesday 29/9, ZappiStore will be joining our friend Vanessa Oshima from Coca-Cola Japan for a 5k race along one of the most historic routes of Dublin, to help her reach the goal of raising $10,000 to support Cancer research. That day will be Vanessa’s 1113th consecutive day of running 5k outdoors.

So if you’ll be at ESOMAR next week, come join us and Vanessa on Tuesday at 6:45AM in front of Dublin Customs House. We’ll be running for a good cause, and will get to see Dublin’s most important landmarks along the way, finishing at Old Jameson Distillery.

For those of you who can’t make it and would still like to make a difference please follow this link to the charity’s donation page.

Vanessa first started continuous running in 2011, as a promise to a friend who at the time was battling Breast Cancer. On day 259 she was done with treatment – Vanessa though was not done running. In fact, she continued on with this challenge and inspired more people to join along the way. As of today, she has completed 3 of the Big Six marathons, she has run in snow and when sick and sore – and has managed to raise over $8,000 to support the Cancer Society of New Zealand.
