Finsbury Park


Come and join us to run/walk in support of ICSN community outreach programs in the UK and UDARA charity work in Nigeria happening 1st November – 10th November 2019.


In recent years ICSN has raised funds for various charitable organisations that do crucial work in Igbo land such as the Elly Eleanor Foundation in 2018. Moving forward, we would like to give back personally to the impoverished communities back home as ICSN through our Udara programme. The idea is to continue to raise money the way we do here in the UK and the funds raised will go toward the purchase of resources and financial support that will be apportioned between the different charities and the community projects that will be supported and to provide shelter and transportation within Nigeria for those travelling out to Nigeria in November this year.

From mounting conversations in the diaspora around how to improve/support those back home, ICSN has seen a growing desire in Igbos’ living in the diaspora to visit home and reconnect with their roots, give back and experience the Igbo culture to its fullest. There is no better time to do this than the present.

Tickets are booked and we are ready to go. It’s not too late to join us though – please email if you would like to join us for the trip. If you have a charity in mind that we can support, whilst on our visit to Nigeria, then please do fill in this form to NOMINATE A CHARITYand we will be in touch.


Our overarching aims and objectives are to:

1) Provide a means for young Igbo professionals in the diaspora to support programmes back home.

2) Enable Young Igbo Professionals to visit Nigeria more often to reconnect and experience their culture first hand.

3) To assist local community projects through a combination of financial and manpower efforts in order to help them further along their work to better the Igbo community in Nigeria.

In 2019 we plan to pilot various programs that support our aims and objectives. The first one being “Run this May” a 5K run in Finsbury Park, London.


Why have we put the 5K run fundraiser together?

Our first fundraising event will be on Saturday 11th May 2019. This fundraising event will be funded by ICSN and runners who will pay a small fee (up to £10 which will cover a t-shirts for each runner and nourishment for the run) we encourage all runners and supporters to obtain sponsorship from their network to run/jog/walk the 5K which will help us to raise the £5,000 for ICSN’s Udara programme.

On the day, in addition to the main run, there will be fun activities for kids of all ages and families, including classics like the egg and spoon race, three-legged race and more besides. We would really appreciate your support on the 11th May and we can’t wait to see you.
