A round of ap­plause for such a great cause

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Ev­ery year, on a fine Novem­ber Sunday, the Mal­tese roads come to a halt. The morn­ing pic­nic and fam­ily out­ings are re­placed by a highly an­tic­i­pated fun run or­gan­ised by the Malta Com­mu­nity Chest Fund to help those in need. The 8th edi­tion of the Pres­i­dent’s Sol­i­dar­ity Fun Run took place last Sunday and was once again a hit. The long­est route started from Ra­bat (Saqqa­jja Hill) for a to­tal of 11.3 km, but shorter routes start­ing from Paola and Univer­sity were also avail­able. All routes met at Portes des Bombes in Flo­ri­ana to make their way to the grand fi­nale in St Ge­orge’s Square in Val­letta.

Par­tic­i­pants were wel­comed to the square with nour­ish­ment, medals and en­ter­tain­ment, bring­ing the suc­cess­ful event to an end on an en­er­getic and vi­brant note. Fruit­land Com­pany spon­sored the event with boxes of GIOIA ba­nanas on the day, mak­ing sure that all par­tic­i­pants were given a healthy en­ergy pack in a snack to quickly re­plen­ish them­selves in time to join in on the post-run cel­e­bra­tions. Fruit­land Com­pany be­lieves in join­ing to­gether for a good cause, which is why it is al­ways more than happy to play its part in sim­i­lar events.
