Barcelona Half Marathon 2019
The eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona 2019 does not live with its back to solidarity. For this reason, it encourages sports with values and offers you the possibility of supporting a social cause through the solidarity crowdfunding platform, migranodearena.org.
What we propose is very simple: add a solidarity challenge to your sport challenge and support the organization you prefer (NGO, foundation or association). In addition, for that you will have a compensation: a free solidarity number to participate in the marathon.
You can support the cause that interests you most: health and medical research, social exclusion, international cooperation, childhood, environment, etc. At migranodearena.org, there are more than 2.400 non-profit organizations to whom dedicate your marathon.
To get one of the free solidarity numbers available, you must create and lead a crowdfunding campaign in migranodearena.org and gather in a minimum of € 500 among friends, family and workmates. The amount collected, will be allocated to the organization you have decided to support.
