Thousands of walkers and runners made their way from University, Santa Venera, Paola and Rabat to St. George’s Square in Valletta, to form a joyous chorus and a fantastic atmosphere during the eight edition of The President’s Solidarity Fun Run.

Organised by the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation and Sport Malta, this annual event has become a mainstay event, raising considerable funds for the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation, which extends its support to charitable institutions and individuals and sectors in need.

“The enthusiasm and generosity of the Maltese people shines bright as we unite under the banner of ‘One Nation, One Heartbeat’ to raise funds for such a worthy cause,” said Dr Michael Frendo, Banif Bank Chairman.

“On behalf of Banif, we would like to thank all those who walked and ran in the name of solidarity. For the past eight years we have kept up our commitment to the MCCFF, inspired always by the solidarity shown by the Maltese people! Well done and thank you to all involved! ”
