More than 450 charitable folks descended upon Almeria on Sunday, November 20, in celebration of the VII Solidarity Charity Running Trail to raise awareness and funds for sufferers of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.

The Councillor for Sports, Juanjo Segura, attended the sporting event with the company of Francisco Manrique, organiser of the Duchenne Association race.

After the start of the race, which took place in Calle Olula de Castro, both runners and walkers covered a distance of about 6 kilometres.

Juanjo Segura said: “It is a new popular race that Almeria is hosting in order to support the lines of research into the disease. It is a joy to see the people of Almeria joining this cause and, therefore, we are proud to continue supporting this type of event, already consolidated in our sports calendar.”

Francisco Manrique, the organiser of the solidarity race, said: “This event generates funds, which are the profits obtained from the race. It is a grain of sand among the many other tasks that are carried out throughout Spain by affected families but it all helps.”
