2013 Marathon Against Chagas

Maratón contra el Chagas 2013

On Sunday, August 25, Iniciar for Global Action Foundation will hold the Second Edition of the “Marathon against Chagas Disease”, in Palermo, City of Buenos Aires.

Iniciar for Global Action is a foundation working globally and in an inter-disciplinary way with professionals specialized in different subjects. Its main goal is to foster sustainable changes and developments for vulnerable communities, supporting projects and programs designed to solve specific needs and to make a favorable impact on people’s lives.

Given the commitment undertaken after developing consciousness on the real damage inflicted by the Chagas disease -not only as an ailment but also as a social concern-, and given the interest that began to flag throughout the community after spreading information as from 2012, Iniciar for Global Action has been supporting the prevention and early detection of the Chagas disease and other social problems by means of education.

This is why we organized this Second Marathon against Chagas disease, in order to inform and raise consciousness in society about this “long forgotten and silent ailment”.

All funds collected will be assigned to the pilot project conducted by Dr. Gustavo Farrugia: Asociación Civil La Higuera – Casa de la Pediatría Rural Don Laureano (La Higuera Association – House Don Laureano for the Practice of Pediatricians in Rural Areas) that, among other aims, seeks to train professionals specialized in Pediatrics for rural and suburban areas and in Education for Solidarity, thus bringing this professionals close to the social-sanitary situation.
