The President’s Solidarity Fun Run - 10th Edition

The Central Bank of Malta has once again sponsored its staff together with members of their families for the President's Solidarity Fun Run held on Sunday, 4 November 2018.

The annual event, now in its 10th year, aims to collect funds for the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation. Funds collected are donated during the annual televised show L-Istrina which is held on Boxing Day.

Staff from the Bank wearing commemorative t-shirts joined the thousands of participants from four different routes. Some ran all the way from Rabat to Valletta covering more than 11 kms and others walked more than 4 kms either from St Venera, Msida or Paola to St George's Square.

In her closing speech at the end of the event, HE Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca said that the Maltese always stand up to express solidarity, generosity, respect and love. She highlighted that requests to the Community Chest Fund Foundation for help increase by the day, and that €800,000 a month is being spent on chemotherapy. She spoke of projected expenses that are expected to rise to €9 million, adding that this year's L-Istrina needs to be stronger than usual.
