CHILDREN from schools in Huercal Overa have shown their caring side by running for Unicef.
The children from secondary schools in the area took part in this second race for Unicef. The activity was supported by Huercal Overa’s department of Sports with a twofold purpose – first, to raise money for Unicef, but secondly to encourage sport among the youngsters.
This year IES Cura Valera organised the race under the slogan, Gotas para Niger (Drops for Niger). The run took place at Huercal Overa fairground, the same venue as 2014’s event.
Councillor for Sports, Alonso Mena, joined the students and teachers for the race. He said: “You are carrying out activities where our children can share their caring side through sport. The town council supports events that work with non-profit associations and that make our children more active.”
The money was raised via the registrations with 100 per cent going to Unicef. Unicef is a driving force behind the rights of children all over the world. They work with decision makers to make changes and overcome poverty, violence, disease and discrimination.
