In the 2021 edition of the restart, a total of over 60 thousand euros of funds were collected in favor of solidarity.
On the occasion of its 100 years of activity, this year LILT will celebrate together with Venicemarathon bringing thousands of women to run the 'VM10K - Lilt for woman'!
Venice, 22 June 2022 - The Venice Marathon has always been an important event for solidarity too! There are several non-profit associations and non-profit organizations that take the opportunity of this prestigious international stage to raise awareness of athletes and the public and raise useful funds for important causes and projects.
Venicemarathon promotes solidarity through the Charity Program, that is a cross-sectional fundraising program, which combines the crowdfunding system promoted on the Rete del Dono platform by the non-profit organizations participating in the initiative, with subscriptions to the four Alì Family Runs (non-competitive promotional events sports at school level).
Last year, in the edition of the post-Covid restart still limited in numbers, a total of over 60,000 euros were collected, a figure that was almost double before the pandemic. In fact, since 2014, the year in which the solidarity program was launched, a total of more than 1,000,000 euros have been collected to date.
In recent days, applications have opened to join the Charity Program linked to the 36th UYN Venicemarahon on 23 October and associations such as Iside Cooperativa Sociale, Granello di Senape, Sport Senza Frontiere, Rotary District 2060, Banca degli Occhi, Airc, Aido, Admo, Africa Mission, Avis, Associazione Piccoli Punti, Sightsaver, Raccontiamo con Francesca and LILT. To these, several others will be added in the coming months.
A separate discussion deserves the LILT, the Italian League for the fight against cancer, which this year has decided to celebrate its 100 years of activity together with Venicemarathon. As part of the 10K race, Lilt will organize the "VM10K - Lilt for woman", a pink race to promote the culture of cancer prevention, aimed at women but also open to male participation.
