Sports Keep our Youth Away from Drug Consumption
In its second edition, the Allianz Rock‘n’Roll Medellín Half Marathon 2020 wants to produce a long-term social impact. This is why we partner with the organism PASOS DE FELICIDAD, to identify 50 children from the communities with highest social risk within the City of Medellín, whom we will provide with implements for the practice of running (t-shirt, shorts, sneakers, jogger, hat and backpack) and we’ll offer them a free registration to the 2020 event, in the category that corresponds to each one.
From this edition and for all future years, these same children will have their free registration to all editions of the Allianz Rock‘n’Roll Medellín Half Marathon. This way we want to promote sports as a way of life for them, boosting future generations of athletes in the City of Medellín.
How will we do it? For the 2020 edition we’ll incorporate the “KIDS RUN”, a competition for children from 7 to 12 years old, with 500, 750 and 1000-meters distances. We will enable 600 registrations with a symbolic value of $15, that includes: bib number, t-shirt, hydration & assistance, race medal and the entire experience of the event. This competition will be held on Saturday, March 7 at 2:00 p.m., and 100% of the proceeds from the registration will be used to finance the cause described above.
