Running for others

Emilia was stranded in Italy by the coronavirus pandemic. He's running a marathon in his house for the benefit of Necochea hospital.

Stories of people

There are people who have the ability to get something good even from the most difficult situations.  Emilia Juliano  traveled  to  Italy   in early March with many plans and a return date: I thought to stay there for a month. But, unfortunately, its arrival coincided with the arrival of   COVID-19   in that country, and things changed. She was stranded, but despite everything she takes advantage of it to put together a solidarity move: she will run a  marathon to benefit the hospital of  Necochea  , her hometown.

Emilia is a marathoner, muscle building teacher, lifeguard and chef. On March 2, he arrived in Italy, where he planned to process his citizenship, get to know the country and meet with his brother Leandro, who lives in the  United States  and whom he had not seen for 10 years. Together with his wife and his two daughters, which began as a pleasure trip ended in a  forced family quarantine  .

The  coronavirus  pandemic has them now isolated in a house they rented in  Bolbeno , a village in the north of the country, in the province of Trento, which has 300 inhabitants. For a marathoner, being locked up can be torture. Emilia, however, wants to take the opportunity to help.

 On April 15 , he will hold  a  42-kilometer marathon in the courtyard of the house you rent . He put on sale each of the  281 laps  that will give around a shed in the back of the house. The circuit will have 150 meters, with a landscape of mountains dreamed as a frame. The base price of each round is 200 pesos. The proceeds will be donated to the  Dr. Emilio Ferreyra Municipal Hospital in Necochea  (Buenos Aires), his hometown.

How to help?

Through the site , you can buy a return to collaborate with Emilia's cause. There you can also know who the donors are.

The race will be broadcast on  Emilia's Facebook account, so that whoever wants to join from home to accompany her: running, riding a fixed bike, dancing. To be close, despite the distance.
