La Laguna plans second solidarity race
A major solidarity race is to be held in La Laguna on Sunday, June 21st for the second year running.
Various help organisations in the municipality are getting together to organise the event under the banner of “La Laguna Solidaria”.
The aim is to raise funds for social programmes and encourage volunteerism and social commitment among citizens.
The race is open to all residents and will cover a route between the Plaza del Cristo and Plaza de Las Mercedes.
There are two modes. One is competitive, over five kilometres and for people over the age of 14. This costs five euros to enter. The other is non-competitive, over a course of four kilometres, and is suitable for all ages. The fee is three euros. In both cases, each entrant is asked to bring along one kilo of non-perishable food.
All participants will receive a tee-shirt and will be invited to a luncheon after the event.
Registrations can be done at the office of the non-governmental organisations involved in the race in the old José de Anchieta school. Those interested can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or see www.lalagunasolidaria.blogspot.com.
