A renewed sodality between the Port of Venice and Venicemarathon Charity Program


More and more runners are joining the fundraisers team join of the Port of Venice, supporting once again the Venicemarathon and its Charity Program, a humanitarian project that allows an ethical and supportive practice of sport.

The port renewed also its support to the “Associazione Amici della Laguna e del Porto” (Friends of the Lagoon and Port Association) - which every year emraces a different cause, linked to difficult situations in our territory - active this year on the Network “Rete del Dono” with the project “Corriamo con Filippo insieme verso la cura” (Let's run together with Filippo for the therapy). The project concerns Marghera again, but this time it’s aimed at people suffering from rare diseases, and in particular from the CDKL5 syndrome, supporting the “Associazione CDKL5 Insieme Verso la Cura” (CDKL5 Together for the therapy), founded in Marghera by Filippo's father (Filippo is a child affected by the CDKL5 syndrome) and present in the territory for the past 10 years.

To support the project the Port Authority promotes the fifth edition of the “Trofeo Porto di Venezia” (Port of Venice Trophy): the participants are fundraisers for the project, running with a humanitarian and socializing commitment.

The fundraising is open on the “Rete del Dono” Network at the following address:

Thanks to this initiative, more than 70 fundraisers of the port community support the project, and can be helped through donations or even by sharing and awareness-raising activities.
