We are thrilled to announce the fourth edition of the Zagreb Advent Run charity race that will take place on December 8th, 2019, with its starting and finishing line in front of The Westin Zagreb Hotel!
This year’s installment of the race is dedicated to raising awareness and promoting the importance of responsible activities under the sun throughout the entire year, no matter the season. According to recent reports by the Cancer Registry of the Croatian Public Health Institute, in 2016, some 800 people in Croatia have suffered from melanoma. Our goal is to inspire our runners as well as all citizens to act sensibly and focus on preventing cancer, making sure they perform regular check-ups of moles and take of their skin all year long. That is why we are donating a segment of funds gathered from participation fees to the 'Zdravi pod suncem' (Healthy Under the Sun) association, to support their programs and projects.
