I would like to raise as much money as possible for the Charity Menudos Corazones. I have known this charity through a friend, who has a 15th month baby very sick and they came to have a medical treatment in London. Fortunately my friend could pay the treatment for her child but not all families can make it.
Menudos Corazones helps children with Heart Diseases supporting families in many ways from medical and psychology support to free accommodation. Please check his website to know more about their work. http://www.menudoscorazones.org/en
Deciding what to do for my fundraising activity would be, I searched the internet for inspiration and ideas…I was overwhelmed and I can only say WOW!! to all those people who are raising money for amazing causes through skydiving , trekking and so on. However I wanted to choose something inexpensive so that all money rose would go straight to the charity rather than pay an experience as well something to change my life routine.
I have heard about a small Marathon in New Year Eve at night in Madrid…My first thought was OMG!! People have to be crazy running in a cold winter night instead of celebrating the New Year with friends and families! After a second thought I said to myself “hold on a minute, that’s what I was looking for!!” So here we go…I just become one of those crazy people who are going to run in New Year Eve!!
All money raised will be spent helping underprivileged families who need financial support to cover some of their expenses. Sometime we did not realise how much would be impacted in a family things like:
Hospital parking: £4 per hour or more in some cities
Diary lunches/dinners £10 per lunch
Accommodation £50 per night
I would like to say thank you very much in advance for your support to this fantastic cause.

I am not a celebrity person, politician or millionaire who would be raising millions of pounds!!... I am just a single person who believes a child’s smile is priceless. That is why I would like to raise as much money as possible for the Charity Menudos Corazones.
