Madrid (Agenzia Fides) – A marathon was recently held in Madrid: "My kilometers change your life" promoted by Oxfam Trailwalker Intermón in Madrid. The aim of this initiative, now in its eleventh year around the world, is a fundraiser for the supply of water to all populations who do not have access to it. The story begins in Japan, report the organizers in a statement sent to Fides, where a military team that was training in the Country, decided to join Oxfam to raise funds for charitable causes. It is not necessary to be experienced runners to participate, conclude the leaders. (AP) (Agenzia Fides, 13/06/2016)
