Hi dear members!
As we talked about in our get together, let´s have some fun running!!! I am posting this event in advance, so we can get fit and prepare!!! :-)

The ***Wings for Life World Run*** is a global charity event with a unique fun format.

It’s a worldwide run where everybody starts simultaneously and the finish line chases you!

Here’s how it works: On one day each year, the Wings for Life World Run takes place at event locations across the planet. Everybody starts at exactly the same moment, 11am UTC. Whether it’s day or night, bright sun or pouring rain at your location – you’re running together with the world and sharing an amazing experience.

***When: May, 5th - 9am
***Where: Leblon Posto Protected content de Janeiro
***Costs: 130,00 BRL
***How to apply: each member makes his/her own registration at the link below and pays the Run fee directly at the event´s homepage

The Wings for Life World Run is perfect for everyone, of every ability, because you set your own goals and you don’t head toward a distant finish line. Instead, the finish line catches up with you. A half hour after the race starts, a moving finish line, the “Catcher Car,” chases runners along the course, gradually getting faster until each one is caught.

When you participate, you know you’re making an impact. 100% of all entry fees and all donations raised through fundraising campaigns go directly to life-changing spinal cord research projects and institutes worldwide.

Thank you Anna Magalhães for this amazing suggestion! :*

I hope to see you all guys there!
