For the sixth year running Banif Bank (Malta) plc has confirmed its commitment as the main sponsor of The President’s Solidarity Fun Run. This year’s slogan – “One Nation, One Heartbeat” – succinctly draws out the spirit of this annual event that brings together people from all walks of life, young and old, in an impressive show of solidarity, for a token participation fee.
Organised by the Malta Community Chest Fund with the help of Kunsill Malti għall-Isport, in aid of L-Istrina, The President’s Solidarity Fun Run will this year be held on Sunday 23rd November and will leave at 10.00 am from four points – San Anton Palace for the runners and Santa Venera, Paola Square and University for those who will be walking.
Passing through a number of villages, all four routes will lead to St George’s Square, Valletta, where participants can then pick up a certificate of participation. Special bus services will be operating from Valletta terminus after the Fun Run.
“Once again we are expecting a great turnout,” said Dr Michael Frendo, Chairman, Banif Bank (Malta) Plc. “Those who have participated in the past know that the Run is an experience of fun, friendship and enthusiasm. It is this spirit of humanism, at the core of Banif’s principles, that drives us to be part of this event and to mobilise our staff to help with the logistics. The Bank will be making its resources available and will be accepting applications in its branch network, for what in effect is the biggest fund-raising event for L-Istrina. We urge the public to yet again be part of this. Each individual contribution will snowball into one of the largest donations in the year, going to the deserving causes of MCCF.”
Fun Run applications can be collected from all Banif Bank branches, MCCF offices at the Palace in Valletta and the Palace at San Anton, or online at www.funrun.org.mt.
