Running for children with heart problems. The start signal for the heart run in the Danube Park is in May. Vienna is the first location for the series of runs which take place throughout Austria. All entry fees are donated to the “Heart Children Austria” organisation.
In June the athletes run in the zoo, not for love of the animals but for the love of people. The focus of the fundraising is on children with pulmonary hypertension. The setting – Schönbrunn Zoo – and the motivating bystanders – Barbary apes, meerkats and co. – are original!
In October the Medical University of Vienna organises its charity run for cancer research. Suitable location: the old hospital grounds (Altes AKH). The more rounds the runners manage, the bigger their donation. The money is used to finance promising research projects by young scientists at the MedUni Vienna.
