Charity Run gathered 8500€ for the support of overweight children


Today 33rd Tartu Maraton events continued with Charity Run which this year gathered money for overweight children to reach healthier life. With the help of 1151 people a total of 8481€ was gathered.

„We are very thankful that so many people came to support the healthy cause. 8481€ was close to our preliminary goal,“ said chief excecutive of Lastefond Sandra Liiv.

4,3km long run started and finished in Tartu Tähtvere spordipark and also visited Dendropark. 1151 people was the new record number of participants in the Charity Run.

„I was very good to see so many people in the start of the Charity Run. Inserting the Charity Run in the program of Tartu Jooksumaraton three years ago was a very good decision," added director of Club Tartu Maraton Indrek Kelk.

Charity Run was organized alongside 33rd Tartu Maraton childrens events today. Tomorrow more than 4300 runners and nordic walkers will start on the 33rd Tartu Maraton main distances – 23km and 10km.
