This event is organized by Where Milan and our partners
A non-competitive 40-minute charity run (or walk!) suitable for participants of all ages, who will get a complimentary pack at the beginning of the run.
The event, at its 6th edition, starts at 6am from the recently renewed waterway of Milan’s Darsena, a unique chance to discover the busiest city of Italy when is still asleep.
Participants usually range between 1000 and 2000 people.
All the subscriptions fees (payable via the donation platform https://www.retedeldono.it/en/content/milano-loves-you-run-2017) will be given to the non-profit LILT Milan, the Italian Association for the Fight Against Cancer.
In particular, it will support its project ‘Case del Cuore,’ that provides home accommodation for young cancer patients undergoing treatment at healthcare facilities in Milan.
Children will live in these apartments together with their parent during the hospital treatment.
Practical info for ‘running’
