In this edition, we compete to fund the family therapy program to prevent domestic violence and school dropouts due to confinement. Anyone who wants to donate more than the $25 can of course do so.
You can participate from your where you are
The Children of Mary Foundation (Fundación Niños de María) with its educational projects welcomes the poorest and neediest children, in order to educate their body, soul and heart, to transform their future and that of their families.
Because love is the engine that moves everything, in the Children of Mary Foundation, we want more people to “move” with us, and that is why we have everything ready for the twelfth edition of the Children of Mary Record Run!
The race expects the attendance of athletes from all over the world with the noble purpose of helping. We expect the participation of 500 people. Categories for men and women, in running 5, 10 or 21 km, in walking 3, 5 or 10 km, in cycling 10, 20 or 40 km.
What is the Children of Mary Foundation doing at the moment?
The Children of Mary Foundation has been working on a semi-attendance basis since last September. During three days a week all the children attend school and two days a week they attend virtually.
Currently, due to the fact that there is an important group of children who need reinforcement, they are receiving reinforcement classes 5 days a week. This will allow them to overcome the shortcomings of virtual education.
We also continue with the SOYUZ project where our children attended a sports competition. The foundation always encourages sports as it keeps them off the streets and encourages the development of self-esteem.
