CHARITY/ Run for Meyer Virtual Challenge
Get moving for Meyer! The challenge is to run 5km, whenever and wherever you want, with every step supporting the Play Therapy activities for children at the Meyer Hospital in Florence. A minimum donation of 10 euro is required to participate and an additional 5 euro will have a courier sprinting directly to your door with the official #runformeyer t-shirt, thanks to the Guess Foundation. Lockdown has seen a surge in those itching to put on running shoes and get moving, so now you have extra motivation! The three fastest runners will be revealed on the tds.sport website, where everyone can consult their times. Winners will also be revealed for the three most comic runners, the three most generous and the three largest groups. Registration (open until midday, July 12) allows you to download the CVRace app for free on Google Play and Apple Stores, which will track your distance and time. The official results will be published on the #runformeyer Facebook page and website.
