Charity

The Gasol Foundation has been chosen by the Organising Committee as the charity to be supported by the 42nd Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP. The Gasol Foundation’s mission is to end childhood obesity through research and development, by implementing health promotion programmes and through public awareness. Founded by Marc and Pau Gasol in 2013, the Gasol Foundation was created with the goal of achieving a world in which all children reach adulthood physically and mentally prepared to live a full, healthy and opportunity-filled life.
