Charity Projekt 10 YEARS „Gemeinsam mehr bewegen“ WITH THE Caritasverband Frankfurt e.V.


In cooperation with the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon the Caritasverband established a continuous and innovative project called “Gemeinsam mehr bewegen” in Frankfurt’s day-care centres. The aim is to communicate the amusement of sports and games as well as education and consulting in health questions – all of this with involvement of the parents. We seek your assistance for this project.
We will carpet the road with one ‘mat of donation’ at 7,5km respectively 39km. With overrunning this mat the runner donates 4 € for “Gemeinsam mehr bewegen”. To ensure that you did not unknowingly run over the mat of donation, you will receive an informational letter after the race with the opportunity to object the donation. If you don’t object the amount of donation will be debited from your the account. Additional data is available from
