Florence event | Corri la Vita Marathon
When: 24 September 2017Where: Florence, Italy
Corri la Vita is an event for raising funds of which a portion is given to public health facilities that specialize in rehabilitative therapy for cancer patients. This event is organized and managed by a committee of volunteers in collaboration with L.I.L.T. Florence (Italian Cancer Society Florence branch). It is not only a walk/run, but is an event for people to gather together for sport, culture and solidarity.
All sorts of athletes and non athletes participate, there are no limits in size, age or capability - two routes have been designed that vary in length and difficulty. Specifically for families, friends and children the walk winds through the historic centre of Florence and crosses over the river to the Oltrarno, stopping along the way to visit gardens, churches, palaces and museums that will be opened especially for this occasion.
All funds raised will be donated by CORRI LA VITA to the following projects:
L.I.L.T .(Italian Cancer Society)
F.I.LE Onlus (Palliative care)
University Teaching Hospital Careggi - Breast Diagnostic S.O.D.
"The Vito Distance Project in Breast Cancer Clinical Research"
Florence Marathon has enthusiastically accepted the invitation of the Organizing Committee of the 'Corri la vita' race to actively cooperate to this initiative and offer its technical support this year too. The company specialised in the organization, promotion and development of sport events as well as of other kind of events, will take care of the technical organization of the event, a 'charity walk' along Florence streets at the rediscovery of hidden and charming corners of this wonderful city.
