#Uni’Run #ImagineForMargo #CheerUp #Reved’Enfance
Uni’Run is a charity run and a unique sports event organized on HEC’s campus, but it is also a great opportunity to join a human adventure like no other. Gathering students from different Ile de France universities, bringing together HEC Alumni and staff members but also volunteers of diverse backgrounds around the purpose of serving a noble cause is the daring goal of HEC’s own race against cancer.
Last year’s edition was a clear success, with more than 400 people attending and over 4,000 euros successfully collected. This time around, even more student clubs are working together to ensure this event runs as smoothly as possible and help Uni’Run dare to reach new heights. The goal for this year is ambitious: aim for 1000 participants and spread awareness like never before.
And only YOU can help this come to fruition.
But what exactly is Uni’Run?
The idea of organizing an annual charity run was first sparked when a team of HEC students decided to do something for their community: raise money to support the fight against pediatric cancer.
The fundraising proceeds of this year will help support the actions of three different associations that all share this same goal: Imagine for Margo that aids European medical research in support of specific, innovative and more effective treatments for childhood cancer, Cheer Up – a student club organizing visits in children’s hospitals and Rêve d’Enfance that focuses on bringing support to the children with activities outside of hospital walls to help contribute to their well-being.
As Imagine for Margo highlights, RUNNING IS GOOD BUT RUNNING FOR A CAUSE IS EVEN BETTER!
Why should I join this unique event?
Running for Charity is not only about raising money, it is also about raising awareness.
You might want to join for the thrill of it, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to prove yourself on the running track (and in this case, it doesn’t hurt that the “track” is a scenic 5 or 10km trail around the HEC Campus). You might also join for the sake of spending a pleasant day with cherished ones in a friendly environment, and you’ll be sure to find all the elements for a successful outing from a great sports atmosphere, fun animations, and events to a special lunch provided by HEC Terroirs – a student club that promotes French culinary specialities among others. Good food, good music and a healthy dose of fun (Stay tuned, HEC’s own cheerleading squad might even give us an exclusive warm-up session) are sure to abound, and you’ll only have yourself to blame for missing out on what is slowly but surely becoming a standard event of HEC’s campus life.
And even if running is not really your thing, be sure to at least come support your friends on this very special day.
