Charity

Amics de la Gent Major (Friends of the Elderly Foundation) works to combat undesirable loneliness among the elderly and their social isolation through the emotional support of volunteers. They fight against ageism with awareness-raising campaigns.

Commitment to society

Over the years, the social commitment of the Valencia Half Marathon Trinidad Alfonso Zurich has grown in parallel to its growth as a participatory sporting event. The race organiser, SD Correcaminos, has always ensured that it maintains a strong commitment to the different causes related to society.

The voluntary donations made by the runners taking part in the race will be supplemented by the contribution from the Z Zurich Foundation, which will increase the amount donated to the chosen charity every year, once the event is over. The Foundation will add an extra 50% to the amounts donated by the runners*.

*Up to a maximum amount of 50,000 adding together the Valencia Marathon and Half Marathon.

Donation on registration

Registration is the first step in the decision to be part of the Valencia Half Marathon Trinidad Alfonso Zurich. Thus, each runner, in their personal registration process, has the option of donating an extra amount of money to each year’s charity. The donation is set at 3 euros.

In addition, anyone who is not going to run but would like to make a donation to the charity can do so through our charity registration on this link.

 

Charity kilometre

Although this action does not involve a financial contribution to the charity, it does have a close emotional involvement with the race. The last kilometre of the half marathon is the start of the countdown to success. To this end, a cheering point will be set up in these final metres, from which the people linked to this organisation can thank the runners for their donation by cheering them on.
