The Bologna Marathon donates 60.000 water packs to Caritas and Bologna hospitals
In partnership with Tetra Pak and Acqua Fiuggi, the Bologna Marathon has decided to donate the water, created for the event scheduled for last March, to the Sant’Orsola Foundation and the San Petronio Foundation.
“For the first edition of the Bologna Marathon, event that achieved a clamorous Sold Out in January 2020 and has been the first Italian running race canceled due to the Covid-19 emergency. The water packs was part of a special project dedicated to environmental sustainability.
With Tetra Pak and Acqua Fiuggi, partner of the event, we decided to donate the approximately 60,000 packs of water to those in the front line to resolve this serious crisis. What we are experiencing is a good time to understand the value of solidarity and engaging in an active effort towards those who need help most, “says Fabio Cavallari, Bologna Marathon Communication and Marketing Manager.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the San Petronio Foundation and the canteen of the Caritas Diocesiana in Bologna have been doing big work on field: from the supply to the distribution of food to families with hardships, unfortunately, in constant increase. A support operation that sees the collaboration of many realities united by the slogan “TOGETHER”.
The Sant’Orsola Foundation is working instead to support the hospitals in Bologna and the health workers who take care of all those who need it every day in the Covid-19 virus emergency. The projects, already activated, are aimed to provide services that concretely help doctors, nurses and operators who work in the front line to defend the health of all.
Bologna Sport Marathon asd, which already at the end of March had donated more than 6,000 Orasì juices to the Cucine Popolari di Bologna, that received also a part of these water packs for Sant’Orsola Foundation, is happy to be able to give its support to these initiatives and thanks to Tetra Pak and Acqua Fiuggi that supported completely with enthusiasm this solidarity operation.
