Orbis Ireland RUN2020

JSA has supported Orbis for many years and recognises all the tremendous work Orbis does in helping to fight preventable blindness in Ethiopia.

We were proud to be teamed up with Orbis Ireland, to take part in the Orbis RUN 20/20 Challenge to help raise funds for this cause through exercise. This challenge sees participants run or walk for at least 20 minutes a day for 20 days in May, to raise much needed funds to pay for sight-saving surgeries in Ethiopia. This year, due to Covid-19, Orbis’s essential healthcare support is needed more than ever, to ensure these life-changing surgeries take place.

JSA’s global team, across Dublin, San Francisco, Singapore, Toulouse and Beijing, all took part. Together we exceeded our collective target to walk/run 5,000 km during a 4-week period, reaching a total of 5,212.45km and taking wonderful photos along the way!



In 2022, a group of JSA employees took on the A&L Goodbody’s annual Airfinance 5km run. The run  was organised to raise money for Orbis to support their work on preventing and treating avoidable blindness. It was a hybrid event once again – so the challenge was open to participants from our other offices across the globe.


In September, JSA once again took part in the Orbis RUN 20/20. It has been a great way to bring employees together from all offices globally while encouraging employees to move more and exercise throughout the day. This year, to make things a little more interesting, JSA were also competing against CDB Aviation. This added a fun competitive element to the challenge while raising awareness and much needed funds for this fantastic non-profit organisation.

Between the 1st and the 30th of September, the 38 strong JSA participants travelled a massive 2,625km, with many running or walking over 100km across the month. Well done to all who supported this incredible charity.

We are already looking forward to next year’s challenge!
