Help Haiti And Work Out On Sunday Oct. 17 At Rome’s Run For Food 2010

A  five kilometre ‘fun run’ (or walk) or the ten-kilometer competitive race  through the historic centre of Rome? The 5th Edition of the Run for Food race will start and end at the Stadium Terme di Caracalla, just outside FAO headquarters, in via delle Terme di Caracalla on Sunday October 17. Organized by the Athletic Association Bancari Romani (GSBR) in partnership with Food and Agriculture of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the World Food Programme (WFP) and Bioversity International, the race will take place in the framework of the World Food Day. This year the theme is “United against hunger”, which was chosen to highlight that more food can be produced and more sustainably in the fight against world hunger. The symbol of the campaign is a yellow whistle, which acts as a metaphor to “sound the alarm”’ of the existence of chronic hunger. The main goals of the race are raising the awareness that hundreds of millions of people worldwide don’t get enough to eat each day and for them, hunger can lead to illness, and temporary or permanent damage to their health, and fund raising: the registration/inscription fees of the race will be donated to the “Fruit Trees for Haiti” TeleFood initiative of FAO. As a matter of fact, there is a desperate need for tree-planting in Haiti (devastated by the earthquake on 12 January 2010)  especially, fruit trees that, once mature, also provide additional nutrition for poor children. With your 10€ registration fee for the race you will fund nearly three avocado or mango trees for a Haitian school garden, covering fertilizer and other inputs.

  • Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

  • Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
