“We Run Together – Supporting our team” is a sports initiative supporting two hospitals that have been at the heart of the fight against Covid-19, the Papa Giovanni XXIII in Bergamo and the Fondazione Poliambulanza in Brescia. The funds raised from the auctions will go to the medical and nursing staff of these two hospitals who have tirelessly looked after Coronavirus patients in recent months.
The campaign has received the extraordinary support and blessing of Pope Francis who is actively involved in the initiative by donating some of his own personal highly valuable sports items. Besides the Pope, many internationally renowned athletes, companies and sports clubs have joined the cause.
”We Run Together” is promoted and organised by four organisations that have always been committed to promoting the value of sport as a tool for inclusion, sharing, dialogue and peace. These organisations are:
- Athletica Vaticana, the first sports club in Vatican City
- Sports group Fiamme Gialle (Guardia di Finanza)
- “Cortile dei Gentili”, department of the Pontifical Council for Culture (VA) to promote dialogue between believers and non-believers
- FIDAL-Lazio, Lazio region Athletic Federation.
