The 6th #RunFutureRace is just around the corner (3 April) and, to get things warmed up, we are launching the #RunnersConCausa initiative, a series of conversations with prominent runners about the charitable side of popular races.
The athlete Chema Martínez, friend of ProFuturo, will talk to different guests about running and how this sport can become an ally for different social causes.
Noemí de Miguel: putting on shoes to help
Sports journalist Noemí de Miguel tells us what it means to her to be a runner in solidarity. Her passion for shoes began when she started broadcasting Formula 1 sporting events, “for physical and mental wellbeing”, she says, and whenever she can, she takes part in charity races to help others.
Mariam Hernández, filming and running
Actress Mariam Hernández, known for series such as Gym Tony or Amar es para siempre, became the first guest of #RunnersConCausa. In her chat with Chema Martínez, the athlete with whom she discovered the world of running, she confessed that she really enjoys running alone. During the filming season, it helps her free the mind and disconnect from the hectic pace of work.
Mariam believes in the power of sport and running as a means to help social causes. “It’s true, Chema, that it’s a sport where everyone buys their bib. This money is then donated to a cause such as ProFuturo. I think it’s a wonderful way to help and relatively simple to organise, don’t you? And also that runners always want to run. We always want to run. So, any race is welcome!” she mentions in the meeting.
Sara Escudero, happiness and running
The second guest of the #RunnersConCausa cycle was the actress, comedian and presenter Sara Escudero, known for Zapeando, La Hora de José Mota and El Club de la Comedia. At the interview there was time for everything: telling jokes, making confessions and even encouraging the race registration by imitating a “minion”.
Sara is clear that she will do her utmost to join us on the streets on 3 April. “It’s such a wonderful claim to be able to ask for that help, to ask: “Who wants to help? Who wants to join ProFuturo? And all of a sudden you say: If you run a race and on top of that you are helping”, she explained to Chema Martínez.
Remember that there is still time to sign up and run for education together with all of us who make ProFuturo possible on Sunday 3 April. You have all the information about registration here. Are you going to miss out?
