On Sunday March 15th, several IUM students participated in the Monaco Run and Pink Ribbon Walk.

 

Monaco Run Pink RibbonMonaco Run: The «3 countries» Race attracts runners from all over the world

In addition to the majority of French runners, numerous nationalities ran along the Monaco Run course this year once again. We have noticed more than 500 Italians and 140 British, but as well 50 Hungarians, 40 Germans and 30 Japaneses who met on the different proposed races. We must not forget the 30 Monégasques who represented the Principality on their home soil.

The cold rainy weather was not an issue for the IUM team. Enzo Marchetti and Laura Hazen (team IUM#Running) were the first to take on the streets of Monaco for the 10km relay with 755 other runners: Hazen running the first 3km, and Marchetti finishing off the last 7km. With a quick pace, they together finished with a combined time of 39’01”, placing them 2nd overall.

Nitasha Sarin, Menel Dimassi, and Caroline Andersson represented the IUM in the Pink Ribbon Charity Walk for Breast Cancer. Dressed in all pink, the girls joined 250 runners (not counting dogs). A moving and lively celebration of life for a great cause as all funds collected will go towards a new breast-screening center at the Princess Grace Hospital. As a charity, Pink Ribbon Monaco aims to raise money and awareness through various campaigns and events. The money received through donations go towards research and education in areas that need assistance in screening, developing and finding a cure for breast cancer.

 

Well done IUM!
