“No one should be left offside”
The Marathon against Poverty will start on Sunday May 27. The initiative’s objective is to mobilize the populace and support anti-poverty organizations. “No one should be left offside,” is the slogan of the initiative which seeks to fight against social exclusion, raise awareness and mobilize citizens. All proceeds will be given to "help those that help." Specifically, the funds will be allocated to third-sector social projects that aid in assistance, housing and work in the intersection of social labour and child care.
