“One Nation, One Heartbeat” will be the cry on the 15th of November as people of all ages and from all walks of life unite for the seventh edition of the President’s Solidarity Fun Run. Banif Bank has once again extended its commitment as the main sponsor of the event, and will be offering its support and resources in the build-up and on the day of the event.
“The Fun Run has undoubtedly become one of the biggest events on the Maltese calendar, one which has reaped a lot of success and which is eagerly anticipated every year,” said Adrian Coppini, Chief Officer Corporate Services at Banif Bank. “We are always delighted to see an increase in the levels of participation, enthusiasm and generosity with the ultimate aim of collecting funds with which the MCCF can continue its important work and help alleviate the difficulties faced by those individuals, families and segments of society who are in need.”
Organised by the Malta Community Chest Fund in aid of L-Istrina, this year’s edition will start from four points – Rabat for the runners and Santa Venera, Paola Square and University for those who will be walking. All routes will pass through a number of villages and lead to St. George’s Square, Valletta, where participants will be awarded a certificate of participation and join in the festivities after the event.
Fun Run applications will open on the 28th October and 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.
