"It is a school movement whose objective is to raise awareness about the reality of childhood leukemia and the need to continue promoting research projects, "explains the mayor, Joaquín Vela Fernández, who points out that with the collection of this test, the Unoentrecienmil research grant will be funded that will help to continue seeking a cure for this disease.
Each runner contributed from one euro per registration, which earned them to carry an unnumbered solidarity number in this test they held in their own centers.
"This year, 850 schools and some 350,000 students have participated in Spain," says the councilor for Equality, María del Mar Ruiz Rosillo, who indicates that each of the children received a diploma to reward their effort.
