From May, 16 it will be possible to purchase the charity bib numbers for the next 28th Venicemarathon to support the projects:
Run for Water – Run for Life by Africa Mission, Bimbingamba by Alex Zanardi and Walk of Life by Telethon

Venice, May 16, 2013 – Next 28th Venicemarathon will be a charity marathon! From today the charity bib numbers are purchasable online and they are connected to the solidarity projects supported and promoted by Venicemarathon. The projects are: Run for Water - Run for Life, Bimbingamba – by Alex Zanardi and Walk of Life by Telethon.

As in the past, the Organizing Committee has decided to devote to solidarity purposes one thousand bib numbers out of the 8,000 ones. These special bib numbers will be purchasable only online and will have a cost of 30,00 Euros more than the ordinary fee as they will be raised to support the said projects.

The funds raised will be used to sustain the Africa Mission Charity association which has been operating for more than 30 years in Uganda to dig drinking water wells with the project Run for Water-Run for Life; to support the Alessandro Zanardi Association Bimbingamba and Bimbingamba Sport which provides assistance, supplies prosthesis or buys special sports prosthesis for children who have lost their limbs and, last but not least, to help who is affected by a genetic disease and is waiting for treatments or therapies thanks to the project Walk of Life by Telethon.

Choose to buy a Venicemarathon charity bib number is an important act to live and run the marathon to help someone who is in need of help.

The 28th edition of Venicemarathon will take place next October 27.
