Anyone whose name hasn’t been extracted but would like to secure a place at the Maratona should go to our website www.maratona.it on 24thNovember 2015from 6 p.m. (GMT+1). 193 registrationswill be available for a higher price and the proceeds, after deducting the participation fee of € 110, will go to charity.
The registrations in detail are as follows: 175 GOLD registrations at the price of € 250; 15 PLATINUM registrations at the price of € 500; and 3 CRYSTAL registrations at the price of € 1500.
The proceeds of the higher price registrations will go to the Association of Groups “Insieme si può”Onlus/NGO (www.365giorni.org), Assisport Alto Adige(www.sporthilfe.it) and the Alex Zanardi BIMBINGAMBA Association (www.bimbingamba.com). These three associations have been friends of the Maratona for many years and we are pleased to be able to contribute, with the help of the competitors, to their commitment to solidarity and support for those in need.
The solidarity project of the Association of Groups "Insieme si può" is connected to people with disabilities in Uganda, one of the poorest countries in the world, where cases of physical impairment are high (according to official estimates approximately 10% of the population).
We intend to provide better access to medical treatment, rehabilitation, food and education, particularly to children and teenagers. We intend to support young people, ensure they receive vocational training,assist them in finding a job, ensure they have access to social services and are included and can participate in family and community life.
