Avon Running

Need accomodation for Avon Running?

A running only for women takes place on 1 April in Florence.

Departure is from Piazza Santa Maria Novella at 10:30, and arrival is in the same square. The proceeds will be donated to the florentine association Artemisia, which will employ them to projects to help children traumatized by their parents’ violent relationship.

A good reason to participate.
