Maltco Lotteries are once again supporting Malta’s biggest fun run; the President’s Solidarity Fun Run 2017. Maltco Lotteries retail outlets are providing the application forms and commemorative t-shirts as well as collecting donations in their Points of Sale.
The President’s Solidarity Fun Run is a national activity that not only brings joy but is also healthy exercise that ultimately provides assistance to hundreds of Maltese and Gozitan families in need – through participant donations that go to the Malta Community Chest Fund.
Maltco Lotteries is strongly involved in the local community through its CSR programmes and is a sponsor of sports events such as the European Week of Sports where the world indoor record was broken this year by 20-year old Juan Farrugia, as well as the President’s Solidarity Fun Run. In 2016 Maltco collected thousands of Euros from its store network which were forwarded to the Malta Community Chest Fund.
Maltco’s Corporate Communications and PR Manager; Gertrude Borg Marks said: “We are delighted to get behind this initiative and provide full support by accepting applications across our national retail network in the build-up to the event. Solidarity runs high during the Fun Run, which year-after-year shows an increase in participation, enthusiasm and generosity in raising funds. As a company we also encourage our staff to participate in the Fun Run and to give their donation and run or walk together in another event that brings us together with the community.”
Organised by SportMalta, the 9th edition of the fun run on Sunday November 19 leaves from four major points: The Run departs from Saqqajja Hill, Rabat for 11.3 kilometres, while the walks will commence at Paola Square, University of Malta and Santa Venera. All the routes will congregate at Portes des Bombes, Floriana with participants proceeding to St George’s Square, Valletta for the big finale of the Fun Run.
