Charity Partnership Continues

The Deutsche Welthungerhilfe/German Agro-Action will be starting for the second

time as the charity partner of the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON on September 27-28,

organiser, SCC-RUNNING. The goal of this years partnership is to assist the

people of Iraq through sport. One way is for runners to have people sponsor

Thanks to the excellent commitment of numerous runners, sponsors, and real,-

BERLIN-MARATHON, last year a project of the Deutsche Welthungerhilfe/German

Agro-Action in Afghanistan was supported with a total of about 35,000 Euros.

This year — true to the motto “United we run for Life“

– the money will be applied to the Iraqi Aid project of the

Welthungerhilfe. Especially during the war, but also in the post-war period,

the people in Iraq and the refugees need our help. The real,- BERLIN-MARATHON

and the Deutsche Welthungerhilfe share the conviction that active support is

possible especially through sport and therefore would like to invite everyone

to support this project.
