Virtual Spring Run | Virtual Charity Run
20 March - 11 April 2021
20 March - 11 April 2021
Stay healthy and join our charity spring run! After a long winter time at home, the Lions Club Bad Vilbel-Wasserburg invites you to improve your fitness and to recharge your batteries while running for a good purpose. Together we tackle it: no matter which level you prefer - short distance at slower pace, a family run or longer distance challenging your personal running record. You are also free to choose the date on which you want to run: Start right on 20 March 2021, just in time for the beginning of spring, or take your time until 11 April 2021 - whatever suits you best! If you are not running alone, then be sure to follow the Corona distance rules: protect yourself, other runners, athletes and walkers alike!
The donation projectsEvery single registration for this charity run serves a good purpose. In the current situation, we have decided to support two projects. The entire revenue and all donations are going to be spent for:
Children's Cancer Aid – an initiative supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) for a long time
The focus lies on the diagnosis and treatment of children suffering from cancer in sub-Saharan Africa. Continuity of treatment is essential for these children. Dr Jeremy Slone, the medical director of the HOPE programme, states: "It’s always inspiring to me to see how strong children can be. Despite the difficult road ahead, they always find an occasion to laugh and be happy. In times of uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we should follow their example and continue to fight their diseases.” We strongly support this! Find out more at Global HOPE | The Mission Continues.
The worldwide Corona-Aid of "Aktion Deutschland Hilft" This NGO alliance provides support nationally (for example by providing telephone assistance to people in quarantine, driving services for risk groups and the elderly, meals and shelter for homeless) and internationally (hygienic infrastructure, distribution of sanitary materials and hygiene kits, awareness trainings about the virus and hygiene measures, implementation of SMS alert systems, support of mobile medical teams). Find out more at Aktion Deutschland Hilft | Corona-Nothilfe weltweit.
