With almost 10,000 euros raised and 700 participants, the solidarity race becomes the action that best identifies the corporate values of Grupo Fedola
The second edition of the Fedola Family Run has exceeded all expectations and has established itself as the benchmark sporting, recreational and solidarity event in Costa Adeje. With a full capacity of 700 participants, the race not only attracted experienced runners, but also promoted the inclusion of families and people of all ages in a day of celebration.
The space created around GF Victoria went beyond the sporting level to become an afternoon-evening party of solidarity. In the burgundy colour of the race t-shirts, both great athletes and children accompanied by their families could be seen; a mixture that defines the very identity of the race.
The afternoon began by showing the most collaborative profile with children’s races in all its categories: from babies who barely crawl a couple of meters chasing their parents to children and adolescents who covered different distances. Immediately after this, one of the most popular modalities began, the test in which numerous families ran in groups in the 500 metres race.
The atmosphere grew in intensity with the start of the main distances, accompanied by the rhythm of the Comparsa Tropicana batucada musical group. The runners had ahead of them the Ocean Cross circuit, well known to runners, combining stretches of asphalt and sand, just as the sun was setting, and bordering Playa del Duque in Costa Adeje. Jonay González and Raquel Aróstegui in the 10 kilometres, and Aday Salas and Yurena Domínguez in the 5 kilometres dominated the events that were in competition and that form part of the Tenerife Athletics Federation circuit.
The care of all the sporting and administrative details of this event was carried out by Canaryrun as a specialized firm, with the collaboration of the Adeje City Council.
The collection grows
The collection of almost 10,000 euros in this edition was allocated equally to three prominent Canarian NGOs: the Anchieta Association, the Nahia Assistance Association and the Quesada Sánchez Foundation, which work tirelessly with groups at risk of social exclusion.
Victoria López, president of Grupo Fedola, commented on the success of the event: “The organization has taken a new step in looking forward and society has responded impressively, even on a hot day. We are grateful to all the people of the organization that have given their all to make the Fedola Family Run a day of celebration. We have the feeling that people are already thinking about signing up for next year’s Fedola Family Run.”
Ana Belén López, vice president of the Group, highlighted the involvement of the beneficiary NGOs, as well as the sponsors and collaborators: “Everything has been developed with the feeling of a full day of celebration, knowing that the funds will go to good use; “They work with people who are really going to be helped to not be excluded from a dignified life.”
Two representatives of the municipal government of Adeje were present at the medal ceremony: Mercedes Vargas, Councillor for Security, Economic Promotion and Tourism, and Coraima Afonso, Councillor for Education and Nursery School.
