Fedola Family Run through Costa Adeje

The Ocean Cross is a very attractive sporting option for runners

14 september 2022
The Fedola Family Run is a series of races being organised by the Grupo Fedola with funds raised going to a series of charities working locally with people in need.  The run will see athletes do the Ocean Cross around the Costa Adeje coast line, running over sand and road.  The event is on October 1st, and open to everyone from kids to older grown-ups with a selection of distances to choose from. 
At the presentation of details of the event, at the GF Hotel yesterday, the Grupo Fedola president Victoria López told press that the run is an event designed to encourage sport, and work with the Adeje council in helping work on sustainability in the area. “We are hoping for the commitment of a large number of people who will come together on this one day, take part in a series of activities that will also help raise awareness about the importance of our environment”, said Lopéz.  
One of the particular attractions of the event is the run around the Adeje coast, which saw the Adeje council more than happy to help with the event, said mayor Jose Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, who was present at the conference to announce details of the event.   He said, “these kind of initiatives linked to solidarity are so welcome and we would hope that other local companies might follow the example of the Grupo Fedola”. 
The run itself will be overseen by the Canary Run sports organisers.  Director Victor Sanabria said the Ocean Cross was a very attractive sporting option for runners and they were delighted to see it return.   Runners can chose a variety of distances to compete in, all details here https://www.canaryrun.com/carrera/fedola-family-run/
The funds raised will be destined for a number of charity organisations. 
The Anchiete Asociación, working exclusively in Tenerife since 1973, works to create real change in the lives of children in need here. They work with teenagers who need educational intervention and with women who have been victims of domestic violence and their children in working to help their personal and social recovery.
The Asociación Asistencia Nahir, founded in 2015, works on helping young people on the margins integrate into society, working in particular with young adults who have been through the care system, and young unaccompanied migrants who need help too in learning Spanish.
The Canaria Family Quesada Sanchez foundation works with a senior citizens centre in Tacaronte whose residents are, in the main, suffering from economic privation.
