Donal O’Donovan, Chair, the Business Journalist Association of Ireland, said, “When we re-started the Corporate Challenge in the depths of the 2012 gloom, we were bowled over by the support we got and the number of people telling us how much they’d missed it. Since then, many firms have experienced the Corporate Challenge for the first time, and have come to love it as much as our stalwarts. As the economy recovers, we hope to see even more newcomers this year, so we can raise even more money for this very deserving cause.”
